/matəʊ/ - A portmanteau of ‘matt’ (not shiny) and ‘eau’, the French word for water.
Matteau's ethos is to be simple and considered. This mantra threads through every part of their design process, resulting in products that are humble and without artifice. Less really is more.
Matteau designs with the intent that their styles will last a lifetime, are not disposable, and don’t become obsolete with the changing of the seasons. They are timeless, with purpose; in each product’s aesthetic so that they transcend trends, but importantly also in manufacturing with integrity so that their products stand the test of time. Quality is Matteau's utmost priority. They ensure their garments fit and perform exactly as they need to. Matteau works in close partnership with their Australian manufacturers to maintain the high quality they expect of themselves, and you have come to expect of Matteau.
