~Beej's Maru wallets are made from Desserto which is a vegan-leather made from cactus~
15th June, 2020, Mumbai, Beej, an eco-conscious accessories and lifestyle brand, based in Mumbai uses plant-based leather alternatives to create timeless and mindful products.
This Father's Day, Beej introduces its Maru range of wallets and card holders that are made from Desserto derived from nopal cactus also known as prickly pear cactus. Beej is the first brand to bring this new leather alternative to India.
Desserto was created by Adrián López Velarde and Marte Cázarez in Mexico with the purpose of finding an environmentally conscious alternative to animal leather. Since the past year, Desserto has been sweeping awards across the globe. Last month they won the Monte Carlo Fashion Week 2020 Award for sustainability as well as the Green Product Award 2020 in Germany.
Commenting on the launch, Ms. Arundhati Kumar, Founder, Beej, says, “We are absolutely delighted to be the first brand to bring Desserto to India. I have been following their journey for a while now and it's thrilling to see them sweep sustainability awards across the globe. Beej is amongst the first few brands globally to start designing with Desserto. As a material, it perfectly complements our search for a sustainable and vegan material with low environmental impact. We are launching a limited collection now, and are working on a full range that we hope to launch very soon."
Inspired by the desert, the Maru range of wallets and card cases are designed for those who are conscious of their choices.
