Established in 2017, Machete is a line of eco-conscious, affordable jewelry for everyday wear.
Machete is committed to being ecologically and environmentally friendly. We work to reduce our impact on the environment by practicing waste reduction in our offices and production area.
The tortoise shell acetate we source is high quality and non-petroleum based, imported from Italy. Cellulose acetate is a natural and renewable material, providing an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based material.
Cellulose acetate is made by extracting cellulose fibers from cotton and wood pulp to create a transparent paste. This paste can then be colored, processed, and molded for a variety of industrial applications. For our jewelry, it is cut from a large block into thin sheets, and then cut again into smaller rectangular blocks.
