Cow-derived leather has almost three times the negative environmental impact as its synthetic counterparts, including polyurethane (PU) leather.
Leather has the greatest impact on eutrophication, a serious ecological problem in which runoff waste creates an overgrowth of plant life in water systems.
With based-plant material, we only cut the mature leaves of the plant without damaging the plant itself, enabling repeat harvest every 6-8 months.
Our USDA certified cactus is grown in an organic farming system in the fertile and mineral-rich region of Zacatecas, Mexico.
We do not compete with food, we are giving cactus its highest value!
Cactus is a natural carbon sink, it has a great CO2 sequestering capacity.
