Pineapple fiber

strong, lightweight and flexible

Made from sustainably sourced natural fibre, containing no harmful chemicals or animal products.

The raw material that forms the base of Piñatex® is a by-product of the pineapple harvest.

Manufacturing Process

Piñatex ® is made of fibre from the leaves of the pineapple plant. These leaves are discarded from the pineapple harvest, so the raw material requires no additional environmental resources to produce.

The long fibers are extracted through a process called decortication, which is done at the plantation by the farming community. Once the leaves have been stripped of fiber the leftover biomass can be used as a nutrient-rich natural fertilizer or a biofuel, so nothing is wasted.

The fibers then get degummed and undergo an industrial process to become a non-woven mesh, which forms the base of Piñatex®.

The rolls of non-woven mesh then get a specialized finishing, this unique process is what gives Piñatex® its leather-like appearance, creating a textile that is soft and flexible, yet very durable.

Customer statements

'I found this brand on Instagram. I was particularly impressed by the sustainability aspect. I had never heard of a pineapple leather alternative. I was very surprised by the material, it has a very nice feel to it and seems to be very resistant. I love the wallet and the toiletry bag. I even feel like they still smell a bit like pineapple. I would recommend it to everyone.'

'The wallet is small and handy and can still store a lot. I always have cards, banknotes, a shopping chip and maybe 2 euros with me. It fits in every pocket and is therefore always at hand. It’s also very pretty! The white wallet immediately caught my eye, when I saw it in the online shop. I thank the Applepine Team a lot for their great service and their gorgeous lifesaver products – I will definitely recommend them!'

'The Mini Wallet from The Applepine is a true lifesaver! Not only does the use of this practicable purse-substitute, which offers enough space for all my cards, facilitate my everyday life in the increasingly cashless Scandinavia, but also does the Mini Wallet contribute to the protection of the environment as it is manufactured with environmentally friendly material! I will definitely buy more of them soon! 😊'
