Vegan Leather Made From Cactus

Vegan Leather Made From Cactus

When researching for our green Trend Report REGENERATION, we learned about different natural materials such as wine grape peel and seeds to make vegan textiles. There are a few companies on the market who all agree that fashion is a serious problem of environmental pollution.

With the purpose of creating an alternative to animal leather, Mexican company Desserto offers a highly sustainable plant-based vegan-leather made from cactus. Its softness, elasticity, customizable and breathable characteristics allow for a wide variety of applications and complying with the most rigorous quality and environmental standards.

The aim is to offer a cruelty-free, sustainable alternative, without any toxic chemicals, phthalates, and PVC. This Cactus textile is partially biodegradable and has the technical specifications required by the fashion, leather goods, furniture, and even automotive industries according to the manufacturers.

The major leaves are cut, dried under the sun for three days until the desired humidity levels are achieved. The organic raw material is then processed and mixed with non-toxic chemicals and shaped into texture and color. The ranch is fully organic, so no herbicides or pesticides are used in the process, and remaining organic cactus material not used is sold nationally to the food industry.
