About Cactus Leather:
An imported textile from Mexico formulated with organic prickly pear cactus and recycled ocean plastic backing.
Cactus plants are harvested by clipping the mature leaves which naturally replenish every 6-8 months. An irrigation system is not needed as the cactus plant feeds on natural rain water and minerals. Harvested material is dried in a solarium saving energy.
From 14 acres, 8,100 tons of CO2 are absorbed annually. The production of this material increases biodiversity in the region, reverts land use change, and enriches soil in its process. Complete traceability of the farm ensures sustainable social practices.
While deadstock materials are not as sustainable as plant formulated fibers, it makes use of the excess materials that are a side effect of the over consumption and production of fast fashion. These materials, new and unused, are commonly discarded into landfills.
Incorporating deadstock keeps these materials from adding to the millions of tons of fabric waste that accumulates annually. Although deadstock is not perfectly sustainable it does offer some sustainable benefits over status quo materials, especially when coupled with a slow fashion style production.
