THE VEGAN PIÑATEX
Our VEGAN COLLECTION is made from 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 leaves are a by-product of the pineapple harvest, which means 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.
To keep your Piñatex™ bag in top condition, it is recommended to wax it before use and thereafter on a regular basis by using a natural wax (the manufacturer of the material recomends Barbour-Wax).
Waxing the material is not only for protection, but it also gives the material a soft patina which you'll love.
After application, leave it in a warm place for 24 hours and rub it gently with a soft cloth.
Any soiling should be cleaned with water using a damp soft cloth or sponge.
Do not use heaters or similar hot items as the material might dry out.
