Mattat started as a dream, turned into a hobby and is now a full time passion.

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.
