The production process of cactus leather 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.

CactusSkin features


One of the best qualities of cacti is that they notoriously use very little water to grow and be maintained. In comparison, the average pair of leather sneakers will use a whopping 2,257 gallons of water during the production process. These kinds of figures really define how water-conservative and energy-efficient our cactus sneakers are.

Our CactusSkin 4.0kgC02/m2 versus 60.1kgC02/m2 for animal leather on average.
