Your compostable bag, made from pineapple leaves
Handmade right here in Quebec, this revolutionary and eco-responsible bag is created out of pineapple leaf fibers.
How it began
This pineapple leaf fibers textile was created by this fabulous company called Pinatex, in collaboration with a farmers’ co-op from the Philippines. These farmers earn a humble living from their pineapple crops, which leave them with a vast amount of leaves that serve no purpose and are typically burned. So they decided to get together and developed an avant-garde technique that would transform the pineapple leaves into a material that is beautiful and sturdy enough to replace leather. Through this process, the farmers have been able to improve their quality of life while helping to heal the planet.
