Tomorrow our new CACTUS SNEAKER will finally officially be launched! 🌵
Cactus on your feet? 🌵 Yes, you heard right. For decades, GIESSWEIN has been known for our sustainable Merino footwear. Now, we have taken a new path. In addition to our popular, well-known Merino sneakers, we’re now proud to offer shoes made of vegan cactus leather - a material which poses real competition to animal leather. The idea to use this raw material came to us because this plant does not need a lot of water to grow, 💦 and because it grows in abundance in Mexico. The prickly pear cactus (also called nopal) is symbolic for the country of Mexico, and is very versatile.
In addition, it is free of phthalates, toxic chemicals and PVC. Cactus leather offers flexibility and softness, and is very similar to animal leather. Plus, unlike other leather alternatives, cactus leather is very durable. So we’re taking green strategy 🌳 and chic to a whole new level.
Save the date! #giesswein
