What is Piñatex?

Piñatex, or pineapple leather, is a natural plant-based leather alternative made from waste pineapple leaf fiber. As an innovative alternative to traditional leather, pineapple leather is commonly used to create a variety of products, from vegan leather bags and wallets to sustainable phone cases and shoes.

How is Pineapple Leather made?

The company behind Piñatex, Ananas Anam by Dr. Carmen Hijosa, takes pineapple plant leaves from the Philippines and pulls them apart into long, stringy fibers. Next, these fibers are dried under the sun and mixed with chemicals. At this moment, it gets coloured with dye and coated with resin.

Pineapple Leather is a durable and long-lasting material that is great for everyday use. Piñatex is a more sustainable and environmentally friendly option as it is made from waste pineapple leaves which would otherwise be discarded. At the same time, it is cruelty free as no animals are harmed in the production of this material.
