About Matt Nash

Matt Nash’s handmade bags are identifiable by their minimalist aesthetic, subtle detail and quiet humour. 

Prompted by the old wive's tale that a coin gifted with a bag brings the bearer good luck and safety, each bag has a vintage pre-decimal New Zealand coin sewn into the inner pockets.

With a nod to utilitarian men's workwear, Matt Nash bags are constructed by hand from oilskin, cotton or overdyed 14oz canvas and lined with fine striped Japanese poplin. New Zealand and imported luxe leather is also used throughout the range.

All bags are Handmade in our Auckland studio.
