Inspired by the AVE bag made from cactus leather, she whips up a delicious Vegan Cactus Soy Curl Fajita. This unique twist on the classic Mexican dish is a party favorite!

A growing number of fashionistas are starting to see animal leather as a thing of the past, to be replaced by plant-based materials that have the look, feel and durability of animal leather. The AVE Bag is the ultimate example of an environmentally friendly, organic product that looks and feels luxurious without using plastic or killing an animal for its hide. It’s cruelty-free and made from renewable resources that are ethically sourced from certified suppliers. Here’s what AVE designers have to say about their mission: “Over the last twenty years many of us seeking leather-free have been substituting one problem for another, buying toxic PVC instead of leather.  The future is here, with innovative new products made from cactus that look and feel similar to leather.  Our handbag line takes this one step further, avoiding as many plastics as possible by focusing on plant-based materials.  Our bags are almost entirely made from cactus, cotton, flax (linen) and rice husks.  No polyester linings here.”

No Toxic Ingredients

Why Choose Cactus?

Cactus leaves are sustainable. During harvesting of cactus leaves, only mature leaves are chosen for extraction of the plant without harming or jeopardizing its structure and stability; this process occurs generally every 6-8 months.

Unlike other plants such as corn, cactus requires no form of irrigation system as it obtains its water from natural sources such as rain and minerals found in the ground of Zacatecas. Just by way of comparison, corn needs an average 1,000 liters of water to produce one kilogram of dry matter, cactus only needs approximately 200 liters which is absorbed through its natural hygroscopic mechanism.

Cactus is a Low-Energy Product

After the leaves have been extracted, they are then dried naturally under the sun where no additional energy is used. Then, with a specific formula in place, organic raw material is processed further.

The end product can then be used for various applications such as pharmaceuticals, food products and even animal feed due to its abundance in essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins needed for sustaining life. Moreover, since cactus has been found to be very resistant to diverse climate conditions and pests; this makes it more suitable than other plants when considering large scale production.
