What people are saying about their Significant Other ...

Matt talked me through each of his products, and helped me decide which one might be best suited to my needs.

Matt also took great care to show me all the features, and explain how they can be customised.
I like that my bag is personalised, but also that Matt makes sure each bag is up to his high standards of quality.

I just wanted to tell you I've had my mattt shoulder bag for over four years.

It served as my laptop bag which I carried to work everyday and has since doubled as my nappy bag. 
It still looks great and shows no signs of it's heavy use.
My only complaint is I have no excuse to buy a new one!

It's the best solution I've found yet to the problem of what to use for carry-on baggage on planes.

I am the proud owner of three of mattt's excellent bags.
All the bags are durable, functional, and fashionable. When one bag did show signs of wear after a number of years, Matt was kind enough to repair it free of charge.
In short, I reckon mattt makes great bags!
