How We Use Pinatex To Make Bags And Accessories
Using pineapple leaves and fibers to make bags might seem unexpected. This post explains why it's a beneficial choice. The waste from pineapple plants, which might otherwise be burned or left to rot, releasing greenhouse gases, can be effectively used. This is advantageous whether you're a Fortune 500 executive or an individual consumer, as it makes good use of resources that would otherwise be harmful.

Alternative Production: Compared to traditional leather goods manufacturing, using Piñatex is much better for the environment. This process requires fewer fossil fuels and chemicals, reducing environmental impact.

Economic Opportunities: This material offers income opportunities for farmers who grow the crops, providing them with additional revenue. This is especially important as regenerative farming practices become more challenging.

Biodegradable Qualities: Piñatex includes layers of PLA (corn-based polylactic acid) that are partially biodegradable. We are working towards making our products fully circular by reusing them in future samples and prototypes.

Vegan and Cruelty-Free: Producing products this way is challenging, but it doesn’t have to be expensive. Consumers are willing to pay more to avoid the negative aspects of traditional production methods. The product is certified by PETA and the Vegan Society.

Versatility and Durability: The material is very strong. We make gym bags, travel bags, and other products designed for long-term use. We've seen great results using this textile in our collections.

In summary, using food waste for products might not be the first thing that comes to mind, but it's an innovative solution to a problem. We aim to upcycle 10% of all waste going into landfills, over 15 million tons, in the next 10 years. If you have a project and would like to partner with us, please reach out at
