Your design style in one word: Minimalism.

Favourite material: Vegetable-tanned leather.

When your best ideas come to you: In the morning.

Founded in 2014, Matu creates items made of vegetable-tanned leather. All items, designed by Marie-Anne Milijours, are timeless, useful, and are intended for daily use. Each piece is created and produced in the Montreal studio.

Matu creates in the spirit of Slow Made – ideals that encourage creators to take time to cultivate their creations. Vegetable-tanned leather is an eco-friendly process of leather tanning that uses only natural ingredients, and results in colours that intensify over time, allowing for the appearance of the item to be shaped by its use.
