PLANT BASED MATERIAL

made from desserto cactus leather, our designs are made primarily from nopal.

a native plant of ZACATECAS, the nopal - also known as the prickly pear cactus - does not need an intricate irrigation system, use of pesticides or fertilizers to grow abundantly.

this perennial plant is common to the region and because of its long-lasting nature it does not need to be uprooted or replanted to produce yields - this ensures a healthy soil ecosystem that can nourish the soil and sequester CO2.

cacti sequesters carbon dioxide at night and absorb water present in the atmosphere.
in fact, desserto's 14 acres farm can seqeuster up to 8,100 tons of CO2 a year. this stored carbon feeds the microorganisms in the soil, organically strengthening the micro-flora and naturally storing (and purfying) water supplies.

resilient and innocuous, this is why the nopal is the central player in our sustainable 'leather' designs.

SMALL BATCH PRODUCTION

after the mature nopal leaves are harvested, sun-dried, pulverized and processed they are sent to our partner factory in GUADALAJARA, MX.

working with a family run factory means we work in small batches to avoid material waste and errors while ensuring fair labor practices.
