Pinatex is made from pineapple leaves. Since the leaves are a byproduct of existing agriculture, their use creates additional incomes streams for farming communities. Pinatex is a natural sustainably-sourced, cruelty free material. 

How Pinatex is made (excerpt from

After pineapple harvest, the suitable plant leaves which are left behind are collected in bundles and the long fibres are extracted using semi-automatic machines.

The fibres are washed then dried naturally by the sun, or during the rainy season in drying ovens. The dry fibres go through a purification process to remove any impurities which results in a fluff-like material.

This fluff-like pineapple leaf fibre (PALF) gets mixed with a corn based polylactic acid (PLA) and undergoes a mechanical process to create Piñafelt, a non-woven mesh which forms the base of all Piñatex collections.
