The perfect balance between sustainability and performance Desserto is a highly sustainable plant based vegan-leather made from cactus, often distinguished by its great softness at touch while offering a great performance for a wide variety of applications and complying with the most rigorous quality and environmental standards. The aim is to offer cruelty free, sustainable alternative, without any toxic chemicals, phthalates and PVC.

Cactus Vegan Leather Desserto

With the purpose of creating an alternative to animal leather, Adrián López Velarde and Marte Cázarez, both hailing from Mexico, developed vegan leather made with nopal (a cactus), which they successfully showcased last October 2019 in Milan, Italy. The result, Desserto, the Cactus Vegan-Leather, is partially biodegradable and has the technical specifications required by the fashion, leather goods, furniture and even automotive industries.

Desserto has competitive features compared to animal or synthetic leather, like elasticity and being customizable and breathable. Adrian and Marte had the idea after working in the furniture automotive and fashion industries where they identified that the problem of environmental pollution was serious.
