WHAT IS CACTUSSKIN™ ?
Our close Mexican partner,Desserto®produces a highly sustainable plant based and vegan material made from cactus. Over the last 4 years, Desserto has been distinguished by its great softness at touch while offering a great performance for a wide varety of applications and complying with the most rigorous quiality and environmental standards.
CACTUSSKIN™ PRODUCTION STAGES
The CactusSkin production starts at a certified organic cactus farm in the state of Zacatecas in Mexico. To make the cactus leather, only the mature leaves are harvested, keeping the core of the cacti intact, meaning in 6-8 months the leaves will have grown back and the cacti can be re-harvested.
The cacti are organically grown and do so in their natural habitat, meaning no irrigation system or chemicals are used to grow cacti.
After cutting the mature leafs, they dry under the sun for 3 days. Then, the organic raw material is processed and associated with stabilizers to create the vegan-leather Desserto®.
