A stunning collection of animal-friendly bags from Matt & Nat, a fashion forward company from Montréal that specializes in vegan handbags. Peta even awarded company founder Inder Bedi and partner Manny Kohli a Proggy Award in 2005 for the best cruelty-free handbag collection. The famous bags can be found all over the world, including here in Victoria at Breeze Clothing on Government Street and Cameron Rose & Gifts in Sidney.
"Our company has a personality and a story. We stick to values, like our positivity message. It's always somewhere on the product and reflects our business and ethical beliefs - first about spiritual balance, then about being fashionable."
The handbag makers actually work in an all-white space where a giant Buddha gazes down at them from the middle of the main room, and there is a special area designated just for yoga and meditation. The Matt & Nat positivity message is stamped on either the inside or outside of each bag:
Choose vegan style!
