IMPACT - WATER CONSERVATION
The fashion industry is notorious for its high water consumption, but ESLLA has made strides in conservation efforts by sourcing the right materials. Cactus, their plant-based material, requires significantly less water than other crops. The plant itself absorbs water from humidity in the atmosphere, requiring only 200 liters to grow one kilogram of cactus biomass compared to 1000 liters for other crops.
Additionally, DESSERTO only cuts mature leaves from the plant, allowing for repeat harvest every 6-8 months from the same plant without damaging it.

A better Future Is Possible
At Eslla, every handbag is a work of art crafted with love from the earth. The brand understands that the perfect luxury handbag is not only about the design but also about the production process, which is why they only work with conscious manufacturers who share their passion for sustainability, transparency and employee well-being.
Eslla partners with Veshin Factory, a premium luxury leather goods manufacturer that specializes in creating beautiful products while maintaining sustainable practices.
