Pinatex® is a vegan leather substitute...


Pinatex® is a vegan leather substitute made predominantly from natural raw materials. The backing material is made from waste products from the pineapple harvest. Fibres are extracted from the leaves of the pineapple plant and processed with a natural "plastic" consisting of corn starch to create a base material that forms the basis for all Pinatex® collections.

The natural backing material is dyed with GOTS-certified colours. Finally, the carrier material is coated with a PU film to make the vegan leather robust, resistant and waterproof.

Due to the high proportion of natural raw materials (90% consist of pineapple fibres and corn, GOTS dyes), the Pinatex® manufacturing process has a much smaller ecological footprint than the production of real leather.
