As a vegan or non vegan you must love Pineapple!
Pineapple to eat….so sweet and sour at once.
Pineapple gives you a high shot on Vitamin C and Manganese which is important for antioxidant defenses, plus the high amounts of thiamin, a B vitamin helps you to keep up the energy.
Also,Pineapple with its Look made it into Fashion for almost four season now.
With it’s fringy hair on top of those patterned triangle placed together into an egg kind of shape it became a must have item! We loved to see the yellow-golden juicy fruit with its flashy green hair crown on shirts, pants, glasses, pillows, phone cases and even on its own as a decor piece.
BUT NOW IT COMES EVEN BETTER:
PINEAPPLE IS DOING IT’S DUTY FOR A BETTER WORLD AND FORMS ITSELF INTO LEATHER FOR US TO BE WORN!!!
PINATEX– THE LEATHER MADE FROM THE PINEAPPLE LEAF FIBRE!!
How is this possible?
The fibres are being extracted from the pineapple leaves in a process called decortication. While doing this there will be nothing wasted and the by product of the process decortication-biomass- will be further converted into organic fertiliser.
The fibres result after being industrial processed into a non woven textile which creates the first base of the new trendy fabric.
The first base is being finalised in a textile finishing company in Spain.
AMAZING AND VERY SUSTAINABLE!!
The fibres are the by product of the pineapple harvest. There will be no extra land or water used for the production, plus also no pesticide and fertiliser are in use by growing those fashionable pineapples.
ANOTHER GREAT SIDE EFFECT FOR THE FARMERS:
The Pinatex production provides new additional income and a new industry for farmers and the pineapple growing countries!!
THE BEST THING:
NO PINEAPPLE IS HARMED IN THE MAKING OF PINATEX!!
YES THE LOVELY PINEAPPLE MADE IT INTO THE FASHION WORLD!
NOT JUST AS A PRINT OR A FRUIT BOWL
NO: AS A MATERIAL TO WEAR, AS A MATERIAL TO BE PROUD TO WEAR.
IT IS STRONG, VERSATILE, BREATHABLE, SOFT, LIGHT AND FLEXIBLE
MAKES YOU LOOK FOR SURE MORE SWEET AND JUICY!!
CHEERS TO THE PINEAPPLE AND ALL IT GIVES TO US!
