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 Vida bags, and that this collection fosters a love within you for the Philippines, where this material comes from. The Vida is our signature bag because of it's simplicity, beauty and versitality. All of our Vida bags function as a cross body, a fanny pack and a clutch. It is the ultimate companion for living a hands free life.
