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.

Why We Chose This
We are always looking for sustainable and eco-friendly substitutes for traditional materials, and the cactus-based biomaterial used for this bag is a prime example. Cactus leather uses one-fifth of the amount of water needed to produce animal leather and is partially biodegradable. The leather is made from only the mature leaves of the cactus and only 50% of the cactus fiber is used—the remaining 50% is utilized by the food and beverage industry.
