About Cactus Leather: It starts at a certified organic cactus farm in the state of Zacatecas in Mexico. To make cactus leather, just the mature leaves are harvested, keeping the core of the cacti intact. Thanks to this, in 6-8 months the leaves will grow back in order to be re-harvested again. Cactus leather is rain-water irrigated, biodegradable, organic, non-toxic and phthalate-free.
Fit details: Runs true to size. Model Liza is 5'6 (167 cm) and wears size XS.
Care instructions: Hand wash cold or dry clean at a green cleaners (ask if they are perc-free). Hang dry, do not tumble dry. Wash sparingly & choose plastic-free laundry detergent!
