Traditionally the words "chic, luxurious, vegan and eco-friendly" are seldom used together to describe one brand, but this is where Matt & Nat breaks from tradition. With a name derived from its chief inspirations, Mat(t)erial and Nature, it has been designing uber-cool, ethically sourced bags and wallets with the brand motto "Live Beautifully", for those in the know since 1995.

Not surprisingly here at PAD we are very excited to be stocking a range of Matt & Nat designs, for both the ladies and the men, marking the launch of our fashion line and adding to our ever growing collection of brilliant lifestyle brands on

The brand explores how material and nature reflect on one another, and thus adhere to a very well rounded set of values that include social responsibility, positivity and most of all love. Inventiveness is essential to Matt & Nat's creative process. Over the years, it has experimented with recycled materials such as cork, nylon, rubber, bicycle tires and cardboard, and since 2007, the brand has made its sleek and highly durable linings for its bags from 100% recycled plastic bottles.

In addition to it's eco-success, Matt & Nat has also earned a remarkable fashion following and has even graced the pages of Vogue. Stylish actors such as Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, Tobey Maguire and Adrian Grenier have all been spotted carrying Matt & Nat.

We love this chic brand, not only for the great designs but also for its commitment to making the world a better place, and we are proud to be stocking a fabulous range of Matt & Nat handbags, clutches, wallets and sleeves for iPads and laptops.
