ZACATECAS • VEGAN CACTUS LEATHER
Each style within the Eco-Vegan Collection is responsibly handcrafted from the leaves of a particular type of cactus, the Nopal, a highly sustainable and environmentally friendly, biodegradable organic material.
The innovative plant-based material is produced from native cactus that grows in an organic farming system in Zacatecas region of Mexico and it matches local biodiversity and requires no herbicides, pesticides, or even irrigation. Colored using organic pigments, the vegan cactus leather bags are available in a sleek, soft and luxurious texture of black and oyster.
Our eco-vegan sustainable leather is produced from mature leaves of the cactus plant, which are harvested around 6-8 months. No irrigation systems are used as the cacti grow healthy with rain water and earth minerals found in the area.
Not only is it vegan, but it’s also healthy for human wear and truly environmentally sustainable.
