Latin American Fashion Awards



Being conscious of the negative impact that the industries are causing to the environment by using animal and synthetic leather, the lack of sustainable material alternatives available to satisfy an ever-growing industrial demand, we have created Desserto® — a sustainable cactus-based biomaterial often distinguished by its great softness at touch and performance for a wide variety of applications while complying with the most rigorous quality and environmental standards of the industry. Desserto®, having its headquarters in Guadalajara, México, is celebrating its sixth anniversary in April 2025. Since the official launch, it has received important international awards like the Green Product Award, MCFW Sustainable Fashion Award, PETA Compassionate Business Award, Good Design Award, Innovation Award by Architectural Digest and Samsung, USDA BioPreferred Program Champion, GQ Mens of the Year, and received a special mention as second runner up at the LVMH Innovation Award and favorite in materials category. Desserto® is committed to create new sustainable solutions and promoting ethical practices through the industry value chains to help build a better world through the fashion industry.
