Desserto® cactus leather is a brand new textile innovation direct from Mexico. Only the mature leaves of the Nopal cactus are selected so the plant is not damaged and a new harvest can be made every 6-8 months. No irrigation, herbicides or pesticides are required and the cactus can grow with minimal rain water and the natural mineral rich land in the plantation.

Choose your strap length based on your waist and crossbody measurement - each strap size is adjustable within 40cm so you can wear it both ways!
It can be helpful to measure the strap on a similar bag you already own to help you choose:

Petite is 70-110cm/27-43”
Mid is 90-130cm/35-51”
Tall/Plus is 110-150/43-59”

If you need a strap length outside of these options please get in touch, we are happy to make a custom length for you

The perfect little bag ❤️

The Alex Belt Bag - Cactus ❤️what can I say, the most perfect bag. GORGEOUS & exactly what I needed ❤️ amazing service as well, I sent a message & it was immediately answered, Thank You Velvet Heartbeat 🥰

The most used bag I have

I use this bag everyday. It is comfortable, looks good and holds my cactus purse, lipstick, phone and earplugs and house keys. Everything I need to listen to a podcast while I walk and to then reapply my lipstick before the coffee at the end
