Materials used:

– Pineapple in your Shoes 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. For Piñatex products we recommend a polishing cream. Eco Cream that protect, nourish and gives a natural shine to your nae vegan shoes.
