tHE   VEGAN   PINEAPPLE   MATERIAL

Our Vegan Ananas-Collection is made by an innovative, natural and sustainable non-woven textile made from pineapple leaf fibers as a green and animal friendly alternative to leather and petroleum based materials. The material is called Piñatex™.

 

 It is a vegan leather alternative!

 

The pineapple leaf are a by-product of the pineapple harvest, thus no extra water, fertilizers or pesticides are required and the waste of the harvest is minimized. 

 

This textile is water resistant, strong, versatile, breathable, soft, light, flexible, and has passed the ISO international standards tests for: seam rupture, tear resistance, tensile strength, light and colour fastness and abrasion resistance.

 

Please read our CARE INSTRUCTION to keep your Piñatex bag in top condition.


- LEATHER -

vEGETABLE   TANNED

Vegetable tanned leather is tanned using purely natural substances for tanning such as roots, bark, and leaves from olive trees, oak and rhubarb – thus the leather remains a noble and safe product of nature. The unsealed surface is breathable, feels warm and supple, and is free of carcinogenic or allergenic chemicals.

 

We obtain our vegetable tanned leather locally from Spanish leather factories with a long tradition of artisanal vegetable tanning methods. It is one of the most environmentally friendly leathers worldwide.

 

Every hide is a naturally unique piece and is allowed to display its lifecycle in form of uneven wrinkles and scars – naturalness mustn’t be hidden. Furthermore, every bag matures to an individual one-of-a-kind piece by light, time and touch.
