I pine for new materials!

June 15, 2017

Excuse the pun, but it's all I could think of as a title!  I am always on the look out for new and animal-friendly materials to use and I stumbled upon this unusual source of sustainable natural textiles. It is made from pineapples. Yes, pineapples!  My prototype was made by What Daisy Did  and the lining is my fine art photography printed on cotton fabric.  I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!







From their website: Ananas Anam has developed an innovative, natural and sustainable non-woven textile called Piñatex™ made from pineapple leaves fibres. Piñatex has evolved from seven years of R&D to create a natural textile from waste plant fibres.  Piñatex provides new additional income for farmers while creating a vibrant new industry for pineapple growing countries. Piñatex fibres are the by-product of the pineapple harvest. No extra land, water, fertilizers or pesticides are required to produce them.  No pineapples are harmed in the making of Piñatex!
