The sustainable alternative to leather proposed by Adrián López Velarde and Marte Cázarez, 2 Mexican entrepreneurs.
They were eager to find a vegan alternative to leather. They had the bright idea of using cactus. The nopal cactus leather is partially biodegradable and can be used in fashion, leather goods and the automotive industry. Cactus leather has the ability to replace the use of animal leather and synthetic materials that are not environmentally friendly. They presented their textile revolution after two years of R&D at the International Leather Fair in Milan.
