Look Sharp With These Cactus Leather Accessories

May 26, 2023

Upgrade your wardrobe with a cactus leather purse or a mushroom leather wallet from one of these animal-friendly brands. Fashion is always evolving, and with products from these innovative and kind designers, it’s easier than ever to make a statement without leaving a body count. Leather, wool, and exotic skins cause tremendous suffering and ecological damage, so we’re thrilled that these compassionate products are more widely available than ever. We owe it to animals and the planet to do better, and we can start with our wardrobes.

O2 Monde offers an array of footwear in a variety of innovative plant-based leathers. Choose from pineapple (Piñatex) sneakers, cactus (Desserto) sandals, or even stilettos made from wine waste.
