Founded in 2012 by vintage-lovers Carl Ollson and Felix von Bahder, this Stockholm-based fashion label debuts its vegan capsule collection. Made entirely from cactus leather textile, Deadwood's sustainable new launch is handmade.
Deadwood's plastic-free, plant-based vegan leather was inspired by two cactus farmers in Guadalajara, who began experimenting with the textile to make leather. The company approached the farmers to better understand the technology to be implemented in its capsule apparel collection. The cacti used for collection is organically grown.
Featuring the brand's bestselling men's and women's moto jackets and women's trousers, the collection is available in several vibrant colors. Ranging from green, red, beige, and black, and in men's XS to XL sizes and women's 34 to 42, the capsule is available on the brand's e-commerce, Net-a-porter, Printemps, and Zalando.
