New: Matt & Nat for Men

The new S/S 2010 Matt & Nat bags have arrived and they are, in our mind, PERFECT! Sleek, modern and filled with pockets!


Matt & Nat Phoenix Briefcase in Black $239.00 *OUT OF STOCK*
Black Pebbled PVC mixed with canvas straps and silver hardware. The chunky zippers glide like butter and the handles are very comfortable to hold.




The detachable shoulder strap can be adjusted for the perfect fit.

The interior fabric is made from recycled bottles. Yes, recycled bottles!
21 to be exact. It was created to mimic the feel of suede. You can't get more green/ vegan then with Matt & Nat bags. There is a padded laptop pocket, a middle zip pouch for valuables, an interior zip pocket and pencil holders. All the tools for organization one could ever want.



Yes these bags are vegan but design is never spared. The Phoenix bag has two special corner pockets on the back side. Now that's ingenuity!




Matt & Nat Kronos Bag in Black $175.00 SALE $139.00
This messenger style bag is great to carry everyday. Two front pockets and one large main compartment with all the usual interior details. Adjustable shoulder strap as well.
