What is Piñatex®?
Piñatex® is a sustainable natural textile made from the fibres of pineapple leaves. The leaves are the by-product of an existing industry - no additional land, water, fertilisers or pesticides need to be used, so the raw material has a very low environmental impact compared to other textile crops.
Unlike traditional leather production which is very toxic to both tannery workers and the environment, the production process for Piñatex® does not involve any harmful chemicals.
Piñatex® provides an additional, stable income stream to pineapple farmers who otherwise face the challenges of seasonal employment, and aims to support positive social and economic development within farming communities.
Upper: Piñatex® made from pineapple leaf fibres.
Lining: Breathable and anti-allergy microfibre. Ecological, CO2 free manufacturing system.
Insole: Paperboard agglomerate. Microfibre lined.
Sizing: Order your usual size. If you are a half size order up.
For Piñatex products we recommend a polishing cream which must have the same colour as the product and must be specific for the product as well. This will help to maintain the original colour and look.
