From the fruit plant that most characterises the wild, warm terrain of the south Mediterranean comes Sikalindi®, Prickly Pear Cactus fibre. This patented process involves extracting the fibre from the green cladodes of the Prickly Pear Cactus, respecting the plant’s life cycle in an ecological way. This is followed by a process of drying, which turns the vegetable fibre into resistant woody fibre used for furniture and other designed objects.
