A mini crossbody bag in quartz. with it's 100% recycled nylon lining, this piece truly represents Matt & Nat. 

I've been on the hunt for a new crossbody bag that I knew would last a lifetime. I'm currently using a camel coloured, soft leather crossbody bag from H&M that i got so many years go. It's still holding up! It's a great size, holds my full size wallet and my next essentials. I knew it was time to look for a different style, colour, and just a new crossbody in general. I've used this bag so much. it's been on all my travels and has been an amazing addition to my wardrobe.

My new baby is very much different from that of my H&M one. Much smaller with a Different colour and style. very sleek and structured.

(a Story of living beautifully)

Founded in 1995 in the glorious city of Montreal, Canada. Like me, you may have thought Matt & Nat are the names of two people. Not exactly. Matt stands for 'Mat(t)erial'. Nat stands for 'Nature'.

"We’re passionate and in awe of the world that surrounds us. Being inspired by MAT(T)erial and NATure means exploring the synergy between the two, the reflection of one on the other."

- The brand - Matt & Nat -  

Matt & Nat are so very passionate about what they stand for. they are committed to not using animals to make thier leathers and since 2007 have used 100% recycled nylon lining in their interiors.

 

| The Bag |

Her name is Drew and she is a mini crossbody bag from a Canadian brand called Matt & Nat.

I wasn't shopping for this bag in particular at all! I was actually shoe shopping and while waiting for my shoes to come out from the back, I took a look at the purses. I saw it tucked in-between other small bags. A hidden gem. And she was on sale! You can't go wrong! I quickly added her to my purchase and felt so complete in a way.


Dimensions: 6" x 4" x 1.75"
Shoulder Strap Drop: 25.5"  

top flap with magnetic closure

100% Recycled nylon lining | 2 slit pockets


Soft yet structured. I'm so in love with her. She fits all of my essentials; mini wallet, lip chap, iphone, tampons...that's actually it! I don't have a lot of essentials lol. I'm actually so Happy it fits my iphone 6s! to the 'T'. The only thing is the future Kat wants to get the iphone 8 plus (assuming there's going to be one) and this beauty doesn't hold the plus phones...maybe they'll come out with a medium size and i'll be happy!

Go check out their brand! They have way more than just purses. plus I love supporting brands that have a strong belief behind them. 

"At Matt & Nat, we live by a simple motto, “Live beautifully”. Living beautifully means appreciating the humanity, creativity and positivity found in all of us.
