A new non-woven fabric
alternative to animal skin, made from pineapple leaves


 

Piñatex® is made of fibre from the leaves of the pineapple plant. Piñatex® is lightweight and resistant and its texture is similar to animal skin. It is available in different colours and finishings.

The Piñatex® realization system reflects the principles of the Circular Economy. Piñatex® is in fact composed of the leaves of the pineapple plant, a by-product of the fruit industry, which is normally discarded or burnt. The transformation of this waste into a fabric represents a new income opportunity for the agricultural communities of the Philippines.

Ananas Anam is a company, founded by dr. Carme Hijosa, for the production of Piñatex®.
