Fashion Design | Innovative, sustainable and 100% green. In a word, the future. And in this case we are talking about a new version of traditional leather goods and all those accessories such as bags, shoes, etc. will replace the most classic raw material of animal origin with a totally vegetable alternative, the cactus.
An idea conceived by two American entrepreneurs Adrián López Velarde and Marte Cázarez, designers and founders of the Adriano Di Marti brand. Who had the intuition to use the large quantities of cacti that grow on his plantation in the Mexican state of Zacatecas, transforming them and obtaining from them a vegan skin. 100% natural, ecological, sustainable and with zero animal impact.
A project that began giving life to accessories such as bags, shoes, car seats and some types of clothes. All this starting from the thick and robust skin of these plants, and that once cut, cleaned and worked, is sewn and decorated with painted and / or embroidered motifs. A vegan and sustainable leatherette will be created, characterized by great softness, flexibility and a unique and bright color.
A careful and meticulous work, which implies a minimum waste of resources such as water, of which cacti have very little need, and which is extremely constant and attentive to issues related to the environment and the different species that inhabit it. In fact, the skin obtained from cacti, in addition to being biodegradable, is also absolutely free of plastic, which substantially differentiates it from synthetic.
A true and avant-garde revolution, aimed at changing the world of fashion and leather goods. In addition to the way of dressing itself. Representing a valid and super trendy alternative for those who want to help support a concept of sustainability and respect for the environment at 360°. Take care of yourself and the world around you from what you wear and a greater awareness in doing so.
