The Kier Vegan Cactus Tote from Fossil is made of vegan cactus leaves. It is an innovative material, new to the industry and created from organically grown cactus leaves developed by Desserto®, a Mexico-based company. The leaves come from cactus that require only rain water and Earth minerals for growth. Once harvested, the leaves are dried in the sun for three to six days which removes the need for any additional energy source for the drying process. Not only is this an energy-efficient processing technique, but also no herbicides, pesticides, or irrigation systems are used in the production of the cactus. As a result of this process, each Kier tote saves 7.5 liters of water. Additionally, each cactus’ trunk is left intact to enable repeat harvesting, as the leaves regenerate every six to eight months.

Priced at Rs 19,295, the collection includes four stunning colorways in black, brown, green & wine.

Honouring their commitment towards being pro-planet, Fossil’s range not only takes your style and fashion up a notch, but also minimizes the impact it leaves on the planet, making them a responsible purchase.
