It goes without saying that they make beautiful bags, but most of all Matt & Nat is recognized for their vegan designs and use of recycled fabrics. Whether I’m heading into town, travelling or attending a special event, I’ve got a Matt & Nat bag for every occasion.

Aries Backpack– The Original One

The Vintage Collection from Matt & nat is my favourite for Chili coloured backpacks, like the Aries pack. To give your look a retro feel or to compliment your jeans, you won’t find a better matching colour than the worn brown colour of the Aries. For those who prefer a classic like, it also comes in black.
