CAIRE IS RESPONSIBLE INNOVATION AT THE SERVICE OF ELEGANCE
WHO ARE THE CREATORS OF THE CAIRE VEGAN LEATHER BAGS?
Anna & Paul
Together in life, we share common values and a desire to change the way we consume. Craftsmanship and innovation can be combined in one brand. The desire for modernity, in the design of the bags but also in our own way of working is a driving force for CAIRE.
We wanted to combine our skills in order to undertake a project that resembles us.
THE FIVE ETHICAL COMMITMENTS OF CAIRE
to avoid overproduction.
A commitment to be transparent and guarantee the traceability of our products and raw materials.
A production in a familiar spanish workshop.
A fair price, to preserve the know-how of our partners.
A material guaranteed without chemicals, environmentally conscious and vegan.
MANUFACTURING & KNOW-HOW
All our handbags are made in a certified workshop. We produce small quantities and we guarantee transparency at each step of the manufacturing process.
The workshop is located in Alicante, Spain. We work with several service providers in the region: for example for the organic cotton lining or the selection of metal parts.
Our bags, which protect our bags, are also produced in the same workshop.
A NEW CACTUS-BASED VEGAN MATERIAL
The cactus-based plant material is a patented organic and vegan material. It is water, cold and UV resistant with a 10 years resistance.
The production is located in an organic farm in Mexico, in Guadalajara.
HARVESTING THE CACTUS
Only the mature leaves of the plant are harvested and dried naturally in the sun.
The plantation does not require any toxic chemical product.
Rainwater is sufficient to maintain the hydrometry of the crop. The leaves are then crushed and transformed into a paste.
This texture will then be applied on different supports: cotton, recycled polyester or a cactus base.
The parts of the cactus not intended for the manufacture are sold locally in the food industry.
The material is partially bio-degradable.
Clean your bag with a damp cotton only.
Do not use any solvent.
Thanks to its strong molecular bond in which the cactus plays an important role, our material offers high resistance to abrasion, friction and tearing.
