We debuted our first cactus material handbag in early 2021, utilising the wonderful cactus leather alternative from Desserto. Another style joined the range in our latest collection, and we are working to expand our cactus offering in coming seasons.
Desserto cactus leather alternative has a polyurethane coating and is organic, vegan, phthalate free + partially biodegradable. No chemicals are used in its production and no irrigation system is required. You can read more about this wonderful fabric at Desserto and read about our founder's visit to their farm in Mexico here.
Most of the Sans Beast collection is constructed from a good quality polyurethane (PU) with an increasing proportion (40% of our collection in 2021) in pre + post consumer recycled polyester and PU that is water based + solvent free. These recycled materials are Global Recycled Standard certified.
We are on a constant journey to introduce new materials to our collection, and whilst we know that synthetics are not always popular, they are far less damaging to the environment than the majority of animal derived leathers. And as far as ethics go, it's our view that mass slaughter of sentient beings is not ethical.
Sans Beast is for style seeking animal lovers everywhere.
