Vegan Cactus Leather, A Cruelty-free, Sustainable Alternative That Had The Fashion Industry at “Hello”(FashNerd)

December 9, 2019

The idea of a bag made of cactus can sound a bit farfetched to some, but two entrepreneurs, Adrián López Velarde and Marte Cázarez, have successfully developed and showcased, at the International Leather Fair Lineapelle 2019, their vegan leather material. Made with cactus, the alternative to animal leather caught the attention of those attending the event last month in Milan, Italy. Named Desserto, the great thing about the high resistance vegan cactus leather is that it has the kind of blueprint that will appeal to the fashion, interior and car industries.

 

 

Getting To Know The Cruelty-free and Cost-competitive Leather
 

With the support of technologies and innovations, it took Adrián López Velarde and Marte Cázarez, both from Mexico, two years of research and effort, to be able to present a marketable product at the Milan tradeshow. With the durability of around ten years, the cactus leather’s basic features, elasticity, customizable and breathable, are similar to those of animal or synthetic leather. The features are complemented by earth-friendly traits that include being partially biodegradable and having no toxic chemicals, phthalates and PVC.

The cruelty-free, cost-competitive material has been designed and developed to meet the most rigorous standards from the Aeronautic to the Fashion industries. When it comes to challenges the creators faced producing the sustainable alternative, they told FashionUnited (UK): “The biggest challenge we have encountered is finding a way to make our materials accessible for small and medium-sized companies because sometimes minimum purchase quantities are a barrier for them. This is why we always try to have an inventory so they can buy small quantities, and we are also working with potential suppliers who can make our materials available for everyone.”

界(FashNerd)

 

用仙人掌制成的袋子,这个想法听起来有些牵强,但两位企业家Adrián López Velarde 和Marte Cázarez

已成功开发并在 2019 年国际皮革展 Lineapelle 上展示了他们的纯素皮革材料。 用仙人掌制成的替代动

物皮革的材料引起了上个月在意大利米兰参加活动的人们的注意。 名为Desserto 的高电阻纯素仙人掌皮

革的妙处在于,它具有一种可以吸引时尚、内饰和汽车行业的蓝图。

 

了解这个零残忍和具有成本竞争力的皮革

 

在技术和创新的支持下,来自墨西哥的Adrián López Velarde 和Marte Cázarez 经过两年的研究和努力,

才能够在米兰贸易展上展示可销售的产品。仙人掌皮革具有约十年的耐用性,其基本特征(弹性、可定制

和透气)与动物或合成皮革相似。这些特性还具有对地球友好的特性,包括可部分生物降解且不含有毒化

学物质、邻苯二甲酸盐和 PVC。

 

设计和开发了零残忍并具有成本竞争力的材料,可以满足从航空业到时尚行业最严格的标准。当谈到创作

者们面临的生产可持续性替代品的挑战时,他们告诉 Fashion United(英国):“我们遇到的最大挑战是

找到一种方法,使中小型企业可以使用我们的材料,因为有时最低购买量是他们的障碍。这就是为什么我

们始终保持一定的库存,以便他们可以少量购买,并且我们还与潜在的供应商合作,这些供应商可以将我

们的材料提供给所有人。”
