Inner lining

Our Classic Tiel Tote lining is made using 100% Australian grown cotton, sustainably farmed in Queensland and dyed using low toxicity, water-based inks in Victoria. Our cotton is unique, as it has been both grown and spun in Australia. Our partners at Full Circle Fibres source the best quality Australian cotton which supports sustainable onshore manufacturing and and local employment.

Outer lining

Our plant-based leather is developed from a cactus plant native to Mexico by our partners at Desserto without the use of toxic chemicals, phthalates or PVC (plastic) making it environmentally friendly and 100% plant-based. Desserto leather is the world’s first highly sustainable and environmentally friendly organic material made of Nopal cactus, also known as the prickly pear.

Nopal cactus is grown without irrigation and does not require herbicides or pesticides, making the farming process inherently organic.
