With Greenpeace expressing its disappointment with how the fashion industry increases the world’s problems with pollution, fabric makers are currently developing sustainable materials such as Pinatex, the leather made of pineapple fibre.
The new and innovative pineapple leather was showcased at the Greenshowroom Salonshow, part of the AW Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
The product is made from pineapple by-products such as the leaves, which undergo industrial treatment to turn it into fibre.
Pinatex wanted to produce sustainable fabrics to help save the environment from further damage due to pollution. Pinatex leather can be used as a normal leather material including bags, clothes and shoes.
