Sustainability Spotlight: Matteau

July 22, 2022

I came across the new-to-me brand Matteau while looking for bump-friendly outfits for summer. I was immediately drawn to the laidback style and fit of all their pieces, but specifically this set, which is relaxed (love an elasticated waistband) yet at the same time figure-forming, as well as the sustainable materials used – 100% organic cotton, no polyester or other synthetic materials. I quickly ordered this set and was thrilled when it finally arrived – the high quality was exactly what I hoped for and expected, and it fit beautifully. This is definitely an outfit I will wear throughout my pregnancy and postpartum as well.

Speaking of pregnancy style – I’ve tended to shy away from maternity specific clothing as I find it hard to wrap my head around purchasing pieces that I’ll only wear during pregnancy, and would rather spend a bit more money on something I can wear throughout pregnancy and after. This Matteau set checks all the boxes and has really been a go-to of mine in this incredible heat we’ve been experiencing this summer. I was so impressed that I just ordered my second Matteau piece – this organic cotton and silk blend tunic that I plan on wearing over a bathing suit, with leggings, and later on over pants (once I can fit into those again!).

Matteau designs with the intent that their styles will last a lifetime, are not disposable, and do not become obsolete with the changing of the seasons. This ethos of sustainability is also evident in the high quality of the pieces and the sustainable materials used to make them.

I love discovering new-to-me sustainable brands, and I know Matteau will continue to infiltrate my wardrobe with timeless pieces and thoughtful styles. I shared some more of my favourite Matteau pieces below – trust me, you can’t go wrong! xx
