What is Pineapple Leather?
Pineapple Leather is a new plant-based textile, made from the waste of the pineapple harvest, that can be used as an alternative to leather.
Why do we use Pineapple Leather?
Pineapple leaf fibres are being very fine, strong but flexible. This fabric is a little cheaper than leather while also promising less wastage. By the same time it gives the opportunity to be an alternative to leather as the ecological impact is already low compared to the production of pretty much any other other textile. For those who live a cruelty-free lifestyle, this ingenious alternative to leather bags is obviously a massive eye-opener.
Where is our Pineapple Leather material from?
Pineapple Leather is a sustainable alternative leather made out of the waste parts of a pineapple plant. It’s one of those ideas that’s good for people and for the planet, improving incomes for farmers and producing a true circular economy material.
Our source of supply is China based and therefore all materials are traceable and duly certified.
