The best things in life come in pairs, like Ben and Jerry, Chip and Dale, Siegfried and Roy, and Batman and Robin. Another coupling that should never be torn asunder: Matt & Nat, the much buzzed-about Canadian purveyor of luxury vegan goods that will not only be swearing off PVC come fall, but has also upped and popped its very own mini-me, with more-diminutive price tags to match.
The bouncing baby collection has been christened Samsara, which means "rebirth" in Sanskrit and plays off "Sam & Sara," another twosome we could get down with. Ranging from $40 to $155, the new line of bags, wallets, clutches, and belts costs less than its progenitor's high-end fare, while retaining Matt & Nat's signature pebbled textures, tone-on-tone stitching, and hardware details, in stalwart colors like black, white, and milk chocolate, as well as new neutral plum.
A dollar from each bag goes to charity, more specifically Enough, EarthSave, WSPA, and the Canadian Women's Foundation. How much goes to each non-profit, however, is up to the peanut gallery to decide; you have until midnight on December 31, 2009 to vote for your favorite.
