Mattt bags

Mattt bags are a range of handmade backpacks, shoulder bags and laptop ready bags, incorporating striking screenprinted or handprinted designs. Mattt bags are designed and made in Melbourne, Australia.

You can buy Mattt bags at one of their weekend market stalls around Melbourne or one of their stockists in Melbourne or South Australia; or you can order a bag type with your selected pattern, and they will have it ready for you in about a week.

Mattt bags are now offering digitally printed designs on canvas, in collaboration with local Melbourne designers and illustrators(eg 'Melbourne Map' by Michelle Mackintosh).

Go to Mattt for more information about their bags, or go see them at one of the weekend markets in Melbourne(Rose St Artists, St Kilda or Arts Centre), or Mattt's stockists in Melbourne and South Australia.
