The idea behind MAT(T)ERIAL and NATURE originally came to life in 1995, in beautiful Montreal. From the start, being committed to not using leather or any other animal-based materials in designs. Each season, they continue to explore new innovative ways to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. Over the years, they’ve been experimenting with different recycled materials such as recycled nylons, cardboard, rubber and cork. Since 2007, they’ve been committed to using linings only made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles. They have also recently introduced recycled bicycle tires to our collections.
