How you use the “Raylan Sm” by Matt & Nat is entirely up to you. The cruelty-free carryall is designed for multiple purposes: A padded compartment, lined with 100 percent recycled nylon, is perfect for coddling a laptop, for instance, while elasticized compartments in the front pevent baby or water bottles from sliding around. Roomy enough for a boardroom show-and-tell or quick weekend getaway, the bag even includes a changing pad for diaper slingers on the go. Whether your precious cargo is a Macbook Pro, a stack of TPS reports, or a tiny human being, enter now to win one in “Stone”!

Matt & Nat is a vegan line designed in Montreal, Canada, since 1995. Inspired by Eastern philosophies, creative director and founder Inder Bedi felt compelled to create a brand that is completely cruelty-free. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and no formal fashion training, Bedi set about making bags with local craftsmen, learning early on about the importance of quality workmanship.

Inspired by everyday life, architecture, and graphics, Bedi gradually developed the vision behind Matt & Nat creating beautiful things that have a positive impact. Following this philosophy, the company puts a strong emphasis on environmental awareness. Linings inside Matt & Nat products are always made out of 100 percent recycled plastic bottles. Introduced in 2011, the use of cork, a renewable resource, for the labels inside the bags is another great sustainable feature of Matt & Nat designs. The company also uses high-quality synthetics and fabrics, and develops its own custom hardware.
