Why cactus fabric:
Thanks to its strong molecular bonding in which cactus plays an important role, this fabric offers high resistance to abrasion, rubbing, tearing, tensile and a great durability. This organic, sustainable material is a great alternative to animal leather and other synthetic materials that are not environmentally friendly.
Although animal leather is very resistant it is permeable and can even rot or crack if not dried quickly after it gets wet. Cactus fabric has competitive features handling humidity and liquids very well, it’s fully customizable and breathable.
Did you know?:
- It takes approximately 3 leaves of cactus to create one linear meter of fabric
- It only takes 200 liters to grow one kilogram of cactus biomass which water is absorbed by the plant itself from humidity present in the atmosphere, compared to 1000 liters (on average) to grow the same kilogram from other crops.
- Cactus is a tough and resilient specie, adapted to extreme conditions able to survive in areas where nothing else will grow.
- Cacti can grow in severely degraded soils, which are inadequate for other crops.
