Care instructions

To keep your Piñatex™bag in top condition, it is recommended to wax (I've already don this the first time for your bag) and repeat this on a regular basis by using a natural wax (I recommend the wax from otter wax)

Waxing the material is not only for protection, but it also gives the material a soft patina which you'll love.
After application, leave it in a warm place for 24 hours and rub it gently with a soft cloth.
Any dirt should be cleaned with water using a damp soft cloth or sponge.

"Pinatex is a natural, sustainable textile made from the fibres of pineapple leaves, which are the waste from the pineapple harvest. Because the leaves are the by-product of an existing industry no additional land, water, fertilizers or pesticides need to be used to product them, so the raw material has a very low environmental impact compared to other textile crops".

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 harnesses advanced technologies to create a totally sustainable high performance natural textile. We carried out the original development leading to Piñatex™ in the Philippines. Its finishing, research and continuing development are now being undertaken in the UK and Spain.

Piñatex provides new additional income for farmers while creating a vibrant new industry for pineapple growing countries.
