A brilliant company named Ananas Anam has developed an innovative, natural, and sustainable non-woven textile called Piñatex™ . This new material is made from pineapple leaf fibres. According to their website Piñatex has evolved from seven years of R&D to create a natural textile from waste plant fibres.
Piñatex harnesses advanced technologies to create a totally sustainable high performance natural textile. While the initial development work leading to Piñatex™ originated in the Philippines, significant research & development is now being undertaken between the UK and Spain.
This amazing product provides new additional income for farmers while creating a vibrant new industry for pineapple growing countries. The fibres are the by-product of the pineapple harvest. No extra land, water, fertilizers or pesticides are required to produce them. No pineapple is harmed in the making of Piñatex!
