Why cactus leather was created
"Being conscious of the negative impact that the industries are causing to the environment by using animal and faux leather, the lack of sustainable material alternatives available to satisfy an ever-growing industrial demand, we created Desserto® — a sustainable cactus-based biomaterial often distinguished by its great softness at touch and performance for a wide variety of applications while complying with the most rigorous quality and environmental standards of the industry. Desserto®, having its headquarters in Guadalajara, México, is celebrating its second anniversary in April 2021. Since the ocial launch, it has received important international awards like the Green Product Award, MCFW Sustainable Fashion Award, PETA Compassionate Business Award, Good Design Award, Innovation Award by Architectural Digest and Samsung, also received a special mention as second runner up at the LVMH Innovation Award and favorite in materials category. Desserto® is committed to create new sustainable solutions and promoting ethical practices through the industry value chains to help build a better world through the fashion industry."
