There have been some previous attempts of creating cruelty-free leather from plants or from pineapple, but two Mexican entrepreneurs have thought about investigating something closer to home.
Adrian Lopez Velarde and Marte Cezarez are the founders of Adriano Di Marti, and they are selling Desserto for anyone interested in making vegan-friendly products. Desserto is made after nopal, which is a type of cactus, is processed into a material suitable for making all sorts of clothes and accessories.
The material created by the two entrepreneurs should last for 10 years and is produced without the use of any toxic chemicals. This makes Desserto a truly sustainable brand.
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 alternatives, without any toxic chemicals, phthalates and PVC. The result, Desserto , the cactus vegan leather, is partially biodegradable and has the technical specifications required by the fashion, leather goods, luxury packaging and furniture industries.
