• We recommend a damp cloth and a neutral soap for hard stains • More specific for piñatex: Clean using a soaked cloth with soapy water. Never fully submerge the product as this may cause irreversible damage. Let your item air dry before any application. The application of a colourless wax is recommended. Apply a small amount using a dry, soft cloth and rub sparingly over the textile in a circular motion until fully absorbed. Leave to dry naturally for 24 hours after application.
We use a natural textile from waste plant fibres. Piñatex fibres are the product of pineapple harvest, is made from agricultural waste and is originated in the Philippines. It is produced by local farms and this really helps to create a new industry for pineapple growing countries. No extra land, water, fertilizers or pesticides are required to produce them. Piñatex is one of our natural fabrics. It is made from pineapple leaf fibres. The leaves – which are normally discarded – are taken from pineapple harvests and processed to make this incredibly durable fabric, with any unused fibres then redistributed to the fields as fertiliser. It’s a completely earth-friendly process and the company responsible are working with pineapple farmers to add a whole new income stream to their businesses.
