What is Pineapple Vegan leather
Pineapple Vegan leather is made from the fibers of pineapple leaves grown in the Philippines, which are both eco-friendly and biodegradable. These are a byproduct of the fruit’s harvest, so no extra land, water, or pesticides are required to produce the material. A unique natural and sustainable textile made from pineapple leaf fibers, a by-product from the pineapple harvest. The fibers are extracted from the leaves during a process called decortication, which is done at the plantation by the farming community. Because pineapple leaves would normally be wasted, turning them into leather is an extra source of income for farmers and a sustainable process. After farmers take the first step in processing the leaves, separating the long fibers, they also end up with biomass that can be used as fertilizer back in the pineapple fields.
