Sustainability

Piñatex is a plant-based, non-woven material made of 95% renewable resources. The pineapple leaf fibres used to create Piñatex are a by-product of the agriculture industry in the Philippine, where 27 million tonnes of pineapple leaf waste is produced annually. No extra land, water or pesticides are required to produce the raw material. Piñatex is REACH Compliant with no hazardous chemicals used in its production, and a PETA Certified vegan material. Piñatex production emits 2.69 kilograms of CO2 equivalent per square metre, which is 45% less than PU synthetic leather (4.81 KG of CO2 equivalent per square metre) and 90% less than animal leather (27.30 KG of CO2 equivalent per square metre).
