Spanish designer, Carmen Hijosa has created a tropical leather fusion. Her line, Pinatex is environmentally friendly, contains no animal products, and quite simply is stunning.
This product is composed of pineapple leaf leftovers, in summary. This innovative product sells for $5 to $15 per square meter. This biodegradable product is also cheaper than leather, and will be easier on your conscience. The price will appeal to consumers, as well as large textile companies looking to save on their bottom line.
Appetite for Peace strongly endorses this product. We hope to see it inside luxury sports cars, used for sporting goods, and on purses everywhere. We hope this is a game changer for the industry.
