VEGAN Jolie Crossover Bag
Shall your new bag be made of a fruit? As farfetched as it sounds, it is now a reality. We are so excited to bring you our first capsule collection of sustainable and cruelty-free veganbags, literally made of pineapple.
What is Piñatex?
Piñatex is a natural, sustainably-sourced, cruelty free material, made from pineapple leaf fiber. The leaves are the byproduct of pineapple harvest, and their use creates an additional income stream for farming communities. Piñatex was developed for use as a sustainable alternative to both mass-produced leather and polluting synthetic materials, offering a better choice for a better future.
How is Piñatex made?
Piñatex is made of ﬁbre from the leaves of the pineapple plant. These leaves are discarded from the pineapple harvest, so the raw material requires no additional environmental resources to produce. The long fibres are extracted from the leaves through a special process.Once the leaves have been stripped of fibre, the leftover biomass can be used as a nutrient-rich natural fertiliser, so nothing is wasted. The fibres then get degummed and become a non-woven mesh, which forms the base of Piñatex. The rolls of non-woven mesh are transported to Spain for specialised finishing. This unique process is what gives Piñatex its leather-like appearance, creating a textile that is soft and flexible, yet very durable.The finished textile is used as a sustainable alternative to leather in footwear and fashion accessories, clothing, interior furnishing and automotive upholstery.
