How is everyone doing out there in quarantine? I realize not many of us are shopping these days, but if you’re like me, window shopping is still just as fun. There are so many sales going on right now that are totally tempting me…and sometimes it’s great to treat yourself, right? Even if you’re wearing nothing but sweatpants and tee shirts while sheltering in place during the current pandemic, a nice little purchase here and there can really do wonders to lift your spirits and help you stay optimistic about everything returning to “normal” again. Also, when it’s raining sales, it’s definitely the right time to do it. One current sale that is calling my name at the moment is Matt & Nat‘s current offerings, which includes sustainable (recycled and vegan materials) handbags, shoes and apparel.
Matt & Nat has popped up many times here on my blog, for good reason. It’s tough to find durable non-leather options, and this brand, along with BLANKNYC, are my top two favorites. I have a wristlet wallet I use often while grocery shopping during the current pandemic because it’s more convenient, less to touch and carry, and easily disinfected. It also holds all my essentials perfectly despite its small size. I’ve had it for almost ten years or so and it is still in tip top condition! For so long I stopped buying vegan leather because it would either flake or fall apart so quickly, but I’m happy to tell those who are super conscious about cruelty free options that quality ones are definitely out there!
Everything from Matt & Nat’s handbag collections feature lining made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, and other sustainable items such as cork and rubber are regularly used. PU (polyurethane) and PVC (polyvinylchloride) faux leathers are used, with PU leading the way due to the fact that it is less harmful to the environment than PVC. Factories are also highly regulated for ethical standards.
