Piñatex is a natural and sustainable non-woven textile made from pineapple leaves fibres. Piñatex has been in R&D for the past several years to create a natural textile from waste plant fibres. What has been produced is a high performance sustainable natural textile that has the same capabilities as conventional leather and can be used in applications to replace the use of animal based leather products. Such as use in the fashion industry or automotive. Piñatex fibres are the by-product of the pineapple harvest, no need for extra land, water, fertilizers or pesticides to produce it, making it a highly sustainable source and environmentally safe alternative. Prior to Piñatex the only options for animal leathers was Pleather or PVC based leathers which is a byproduct of petroleum, which creates its own ecological concerns.
