NEW PIÑATEX® DANIELLE TAYLER MESSENGER
A deeper connection to materials.
A deeper connection with Mother Earth.
Ultimately a re-connection to ourselves.
Our new Pinatex® Collection.
We are thrilled to be using this innovative new material called PIÑATEX® - a leather alternative made from pineapple leaf fibers. It is vegan, cruelty free and sustainable. PIÑATEX® is tough, breathable and water resistant. This material is made from pineapple leaves.
The long fibres are extracted through a process called decortication, which is done at the plantation by the farming community. Ananas Anam has developed the first automated decorticating machine to assist with this process, allowing farmers to utilise greater quantities of their waste leaves. Once the leaves have been stripped of fibre the leftover biomass can be used as a nutrient-rich natural fertiliser or a biofuel, so nothing is wasted. This material has low environmental impact, high social responsibility, and we feel is a excellent choice for the future.
We hope you fall in love with our PINATEX Tayler Messenger, and that this collection fosters a love within you for the Philippines, where this material comes from. Our Tayler Messenger bag is our go to day to day fold over bag. The adjustable strap allows you to throw it over your shoulder or wear it as a cross body bag.

Note: Each bag is one of a kind. Because of the natural characteristics of the Pinatex®, each bag will have slight variations.
