A GIFT FOR LIFE...
Mattat started as a dream, turned into a hobby and is now a full time passion.
Recently Mattat found it's new home in the sleepy fisherman's village of Paternoster in the Western Cape, South Africa.
We pride ourselves in producing quality, durable and practical products made from all natural sources.
The natural beauty of Paternoster and South Africa sounds as the inspiration to many of our products.
Erika Vermaak, the creator of Mattat is actively pursuing her passion for leather through workshops and training in the craft as well. We believe in equipping South Africans with a skill that can build their communities.
Hides are a product of nature, variations might exist that add character to the product therefor each product will bare its own unique characteristics.
