Vegan Vibes

World Vegan Day is an annual event celebrated on the 1st November, so it seemed natural that vegan brand Matt and Nat were under the WSd spotlight this week.

By focusing on the relationship between Mat(t)erial and Nature, this brand encompasses the beauty of the natural world and the way in which this can be translated into the world of accessories.

Matt and Nat endorse a simple ethos…to live beautifully. Their primary inspiration is nature, so their primary goal is to protect it. Their part in this safeguarding is their commitment to not use leather… “Simply put, we don’t like hurting animals and we care about the welfare of the planet”.

“This must be leather” is a sentence that can often be heard when one of our gorgeous customers sets their eyes and hands on a sumptuous Matt and Nat bag. The bags may have the texture and appearance of a leather piece, yet come without the ethical implications of the material. Instead, they are made from materials such as recycled nylons, cardboard, rubber and cork. The bag linings are made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles and the brand has recently introduced recycled bicycle tyres into their collections. As if treating yourself to a new bag didn’t give you enough joy already, purchasing a Matt and Nat piece will send pleasure levels rocketing!

Before any doubt begins to wander into your mind, fear not, quality has not been compromised. These bags are up there in the luxe stakes, oozing splendid simplicity with a minimalist yet beautiful embossed logo reflecting all that this brand is.

WSd has a fab selection of Matt and Nat gems in store in an array of colours and styles. Resembling Narnia with its stylish abilities to hold all of life’s daily essentials, Sarah’s coveted Triplets wallet (£65) is still her ultimate fave. This season its been updated and comes with a long body strap option. Available in navy, berry and black, this compartment wallet is ultra functional, transitional and, obviously gorgeous.

The stunning Malone (£95) Doctor style bag is the perfect everyday handbag. With a removable crossbody strap, it will work for any occasion and take you from the office to the bar…!

We have a fab collection of Matt and Nat purses in store too and with colours including ‘Bordeaux’ ‘Cocoa’ ‘Macaroon’ and ‘Fig’ you’ll feel like you’re in a grown up sweet shop, desperately deliberating the delights before you. Prices range from £35 to £55.

Looking for the perfect Christmas gift for that special someone who has it all? You can’t go wrong with a Matt and Nat iPad sleeve, available in a bevy of sumptuous shades.

As beautiful in its appearance as it is its name, the Alaya (£75) is a fold-over crossbody that can also be used as a clutch. This wonder if definitely on the Christmas list!

Fancy owning your own vegan delight? You could be in with the chance of winning a stunning Matt and Nat purse worth £45 as part of the WSd 5th Birthday raffle. Every penny from the raffle tickets goes to The Royal British Legion and The British Heart Foundation. Purchase your tickets before the draw on Wednesday 11th November.

I think you’ll agree its good causes all round this week. Tell us which Matt and Nat piece you’re lusting over?
