What is cactus leather?
Cactus leather does not use any harmful chemicals such as phthalates and PVC, and is made from "nopal cactus", which is not derived from animals but is abundant in Mexico.The raw material, nopal cactus, is found throughout Mexico and requires very little water to grow, thus reducing water consumption.It is also an eco-friendly product that can reduce carbon dioxide emissions during the production process by about 80 percent compared to the same amount of genuine leather.
After harvesting the cacti, dry them in the sun for 3-4 days without using an oven or artificial energy.After that, the powdered cactus is processed by patented technology to make vegan leather.Even in these processing processes, no pesticides or herbicides are used, making it a 100% organic product that is certified organic.
