Cactus Collection

A Thorn in the Side of Fashion

Adrian and Marte get out of bed early. It is Monday morning and the sun has barely lent its first rays of light over the fields of Zacatecas. After putting on their rubber boots the two step out of the barn and into the misty Mexican morning air. Dusty soil makes a whirling pattern in the first breeze. It is time for harvest at the cactus plantation.

At Deadwood we simply fell in love with these two cactus cowboys and their rebellious attitude in taking on the established ways of the fashion industry, somehow reminiscent of Deadwood’s founding duo Carl and Felix and their challenging of dogmas. We are proud to present our very first capsule collection made entirely from Cactus Vegan Leather. The line consists of unisex sets of jackets and pants, accompanied with smaller accessories. All for a better world.

Vegan Leather huh?

We often get asked about our views on what is usually marketed as vegan leather, and we often reply it's a complicated lovestory.

You see, there are a bunch of vegan leather alternatives out there that feel cheap, are non-durable, non-breathable and are really bad for the environment. This is the old type of vegan leather which used to be called PU leather or pleather - basically plastic that is both toxic and non-biodegradable. Unfortunately, this is still the most common type of leather alternative out there.


But there are so much better alternatives! Because yes, there are other ways of imitating leather. Recently both scientists and farmers have began to refine ancient methods of using mushrooms and plants as main ingredients in fabric that very much resembles the leather surface, with much of its functionality being replicated as well. Our favorite at the moment is cactus leather.
