Happy Earth Month! It’s time to update your everyday bag with one designed to decrease environmental impact. In keeping sustainability top of mind, fashion brand Everlane is partnering with Desserto’s founders, Adrian Lopez Velarde and Marte Cazarez, to introduce a new lineup of earth month-friendly handbags.

Desserto® is the world’s first highly sustainable plant-based material. This is because it is an alternative to leather and is made entirely from cactus, most often distinguished by its soft-to-the-touch feel. It also offers incredible wear and performance for a wide variety of applications, complying with the most rigorous quality and environmental standards. As a result, Everlane is introducing a lineup of handbags made entirely from nopal cactus (also known as the Prickly Pear).

Why Cactus Leather?

Cactus leather is a great alternative to genuine leather. Plus, it’s super stylish! This is because it can last 10 years without crocking. Thanks to cacti’s strong molecular bonding, cactus leather offers high resistance to abrasion, rubbing, tearing, and tensile. It also has immense durability which means it will stand the test of time. Although genuine animal leather is very resistant, it is also permeable. This is because it can rot or crack if it does not dry quickly enough after getting wet. As a result, Desserto® is a must-have because it handles humidity and liquids well. It is also fully customizable and breathable.
