Designers and fashion companies are increasingly turning to more environmentally friendly materials. Animal leather is replaced by vegan cactus leather, for example. Royals like Queen Máxima have also taken a liking to the alternative.

Sustainability plays an increasingly important role in the fashion industry. Designers rely less and less on real furs and animal leather. For the latter, there is now a particularly environmentally friendly and yet high-quality alternative: cactus leather. This is not only vegan, but also does not leave a large ecological footprint.
