Piñatex was created by Dr. Carmen Hijosa. She worked in both the design and manufacture of leather gods for many years before going to the Philippines to carry out further research into the development of products made from natural fibres.

A breakthrough came when she realized that se could make a non-woven textile, a fabric bonded together without knitting or weaving, from the long fibres found in pineapple leaves. The culmination of this work resulted in the creation of Piñatex, a unique natural and sustainable textile made from pineapple leaf fibres, a by-product from the pineapple harvest and 100% Vegan.

The Piñatex it's now used in fashion, to create shoes, bags or clothes.

You can find some of our Vegan Shoes made from Piñatex in our online shop. We're proud of our products, be proud of your choice.
