Pinatex služi kot naravna in trajnostna alternativa usnju in materialom naftnega izvora. Proizvodnja tega materiala ne zahteva dodatne pridelave surovine, ampak izrablja, kar je že na voljo in je sicer stranski produkt poljedelske proizvodnje.
Barvila, ki jih uporabljajo v končnem postopku izdelave Pinatexa imajo GOTS certifikat in AFIRM standard.
Po njihovem opisu materiala, se nisem mogla upreti dobremu metru srebrnega leska, čeprav dragega kot zlato.

Piñatex by Ananas Anam is a natural, non-woven material made from pineapple leaf fibre which can be used as an alternative to leather and petroleum based textiles. It was developed as a natural based non-woven material that can be used as a sustainable alternative to consumers by offering a better choice for a better future.
Piñatex is made from pineapple leaf fibre, which is a by product of the agriculture industry. No extra land, water or pesticides are required to produce the raw material.
The Piñatex journey starts in the Philippines where the pineapple leaves, a by-product of pre-existing agriculture industry, are collected. The leaves (of the plant, not the fruit) are processed to extract the fibres and these are manufactured into a non-woven substrate.
The Substrate is then sent to Spain where it is finished into Piñatex which then comes to London where Ananas Anam has its Headquarters.
The dyes used for Piñatex are GOTS approved and the resins comply with AFIRM standards.
