    The bag’s original design was based on the silhouette of a generic plastic bag. Susan gave it her own spin by creating a colourful variation, crafted from Ripstop nylon. The same fabric kites are made of, Ripstop is both indestructible and lightweight – making it the ultimate choice. The only thing lacking was a signature. After many sketches and prototypes, Susan created the iconic ‘Flash’ – a diagonal stripe that has appeared on every product she’s designed since.

    THE MAKER.

    In her childhood, her favourite way of cleaning her room would be throwing away most of her stuff to create a minimalist and peaceful place, simply because she doesn’t like to have a lot of ‘stuff’ laying around. With this same spirit, but many years later, she would design the bag to replace all bags.

    DID YOU KNOW…?

    In the ongoing effort to produce as environment friendly as possible, since late 2019 all the fabrics used are made of recycled materials. The nylon is mostly made of fishing nets, but also of pre-consumer fabric waste and computer chips.

    Matt & Nat is a Canadian vegan-leather bags and shoe brand which originates from Montreal. They do not work with leather, fur, wool, silk or any other product that comes from animals. Their vegan-leather is made from polyurethane, a strong type of plastic, which cannot be distinguished from real leather. Besides this, materials from recycled PET bottles and nylon, cork and rubber are used to produce their collection. For Matt & Nat the well-being of people, animals and the planet is key.

    THE MAKER.

    The name Matt & Nat stands for “Materials and Nature”. Their best quality vegan leather is produced in their factory in China. The mantra of Matt & Nat is: “live beautifully”, which for them means “live with respect for people and nature”.

    DID YOU KNOW…?

    On average, 21 plastic bottles are recycled to create one bag. From 2016 up till now, Matt & Nat has recycled more than three million plastic bottles!
