MoMA Exclusive: Made in New York from sustainable cactus leather, this Santos by Monica Bag features a chic bi-color design and can be worn over your shoulder. The bag’s biodegradable leather is made from mature cactus leaves sourced in Mexico. When harvesting the leaves, only the tops are cut off and used, allowing the cactus to regenerate and continue to live. (Cactus leather can also be recycled.) The bag is roomy enough to carry your daily essentials, from your wallet to cosmetics to smart devices. This Cactus Leather Bag is designed by Monica Santos Gil, a New York-based Puerto Rican woman whose designs are inspired by her upbringing in Puerto Rico. It measures 18h x 14.5w.
