Sourced in Mexico, Desserto® is ethically made by harvesting cactus leaves–leaving the remainder of the plant intact. Our cactus collection is planet-friendly with a small carbon footprint and 80% biodegradability.
We trace every step of production. The cactus farm, the canvas mills, and factories are all located within Mexico–a short drive from each other.
The nopal cactus is harvested from the state of Zacatecas. Each bag is lined with a cotton canvas, which is grown, milled, and woven in Puebla. Our bags are made in solar-powered, family-owned factories in Leon. All our factories are screened for ethical working conditions including fair wages.
