1st Matt And Nat Item And First Impressions

2 years ago

Matt & Nat is a brand that I have heard before but did not really know much about. So after going on their site and reading their background story as to how they started, I was surprised that they are a Canadian brand based from Montreal. So plus one for being Canadian! Matt stands for Mat(t)erial and Nat stands for Nature. With some more reading, it turns out that they are a vegan brand such that they do not use real leather or any other animal-based materials, but rather experimenting with material to make it eco-friendly. Some material include: recycled nylons, cardboard, rubber and cork. And all of their linings are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Their motto `Live beautifully` means `appreciating the humanity, creativity and positivity found in all of us.` Their products are sometimes spotted on celebrities like Olivia Wilde.

So after reading their story, I decided to check out their products just to get a sense of what they sold. From a brief look, it seems that their products are very simple and basic, which is what I like since you could use their products on a daily basis. There are a couple bags that I liked but I was surprised at how a lot of their products were sold out. So I decided to check out their wallets, since no girl can have too many wallets ha.

First Impressions:

-Style: Out of all the wallets they had, I really liked their Motiv wallets, which comes in a small and a large size. I had a hard time settling between wanting to get the small size or the large one since I absolutely love wallets with a bunch of card slots. Mainly because I dislike having cards stacked on top of each other. But in the end I decided to get the small sized wallet since I already have a few larger sized wallets. This Motiv wallet contains 10 credit card slots, 1 bill compartment, 5 slit compartments and 1 zippered compartment. I really like how compact this wallet such that you can have your cards, coins and bills all together.

-Look: The wallet has a distressed, vintage-like look. On the front, their logo and motto is stamped in silver on the front pocket. There is a buckle that holds the wallet together.

-Size: The small wallet is 6` x 3.75` x 1` whereas the large wallet is 8.25` x 4.25` x 1`.

-Colour: Matt & Nat carry a range of colours and some colours are `limited edition.` The classic colours I think they carry all the time would be Black and Elephant. The colour I choose for my wallet was Taupe.

-Price: The small sized Motiv is $48 before taxes and shipping. But I got mine on sale with taxes and shipping for $40. I find that their prices are on the lower end.

-One thing I disliked when I got this was that there was a very strong plastic smell mainly because the wallet is made from recycled plastic bottles. Hopefully the smell goes away with time.

Overall, I really like my wallet! I`m excited to start using this soon!

Have you bought from Matt & Nat before?
