Thank you all for your replies. I'll try to perform your suggestions and will let you know about the results.

I mean that I have N observations of the random vectors x, the vector x has M elements, these are the seed data. So each variable here is a vector (of M elements). Their probability density distribution (pdf) might be multivariate distribution, e.g. Gaussian mixture model (GMM). Since the bootstrap here is nonparametric, the N observations will be used instead of a concrete pdf. 
If you are saying or have a feeling that your data might come from a multivariate distribution, then as far as I know 'bootstrp' will pool your data together, assuming they come from the same pdf which might be an erronous assumption.

By the way ...... what is the statistc that you are bootstraping? it will be nice if you post the code.

For instance, I have a matrix X(M,N) = X(3,500) of initial data. There are thus N = 500 observations of random vector trivariate random vector x following the multivariate normal distribution. These data can be generated by the code:

Here's some very basic code that might illustrate what's' going on 
Just a correction, the covariance matrix that I have used is only an example to illustrate the generation of multivariate data. A matrix like that might have no sense.
