These fabrics originate from grain sacks that were produced over 100 years ago on European farms. Each grain sack was handwoven from hemp and decorated with a distinctive pattern of stripes and a few with hand-stitched monograms, in order to show which farm it belonged to.
These textiles are by nature extremely eco-friendly as they were naturally made from homegrown materials, home retted (in local lakes and ponds), and woven together by hand. The average age of these textiles is around 100 years old woven with linen, hemp, cotton, or a combination of the three.
The Newest Eco-Friendly Fabric.

Cactus Leather is Cruelty-free, sustainable alternative, without any toxic chemicals, phthalates, and PVC.
The material is reportedly smooth (not prickly), flexible, breathable, and easy to work with. Of course, it’s biodegradable too — with a durability rating of at least 10 years.
This organic, sustainable product can replace the use of animal leather and other synthetic materials that are not environmentally friendly.
