Eco-Chic Fashion: Cute Vegan Handbags from Matt & Nat

What: Matt & Nat

Why: My best friend Emily is a true vegetarian. She doesn't eat meat and won't buy — or wear — anything that caused the death or harm of an animal. Admirable? Certainly. But shopping with — or for — her has always been a huge pain.

Animal friendly products from stores like Payless often look cheap and plastic, while high-end pieces from designers like Stella McCartney are way above her journalist' price range. But this week, while Web browsing, I stumbled across desings from Matt & Nat, a company that manufactures completely animal-friendly handbags and wallets.

The line, which its site claims is about "balance" and yin and yang" is a bit new-age-y for our tastes, but thankfully the products are not. A quick glance at the site yields a veritable gold mine of products for the animal-concious consumer. The bags, which come in an array of rich blues, reds, oranges and browns, feature a variety of stiching patters, such as Japanese Paper, which looks like lightly crinkled paper, or Vintage, a pattern that looks "naturally worn." The pieces range from $25 for a wallet, to $135 for a larger, tote-size bag. Emily's favorite was the vintage-looking "Queen," bag in blue.

Price: $25 -$150

Get Yours: Matt & Nat

Or, for you luck DC-shoppers, Matt & Nat founder and designer, Inder Bedi, will be at CUSP in Georgetown on Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. Shoppers will have the chance to nosh on complimentary vegan desserts in tribute to his vegan designs.
