Why Piñatex?

Leather dyeing is a complicated process involving approximately 20 stages and 250 chemicals (including toxins and heavy metals such as chromium, aldehyde, cyanide, zinc and lead) to stop decomposition, which are extremely harmful to people and the environment.
100% synthetic alternatives such as PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or PU (polyurethane) are not the solution as they use toxic elements for production, are non-renewable and have low reprocessing potential.

Besides avoiding animal cruelty for leather production, the fabric is developed with low water consumption, without toxic chemicals in its manufacturing process and without waste, since it is derived from a raw material that would be discarded, not to mention that it is a vegan and biodegradable product.

The manufacturing process up to your bike

After harvesting, the pineapple leaves that are left behind are collected and their long fibers are extracted using semi-automatic equipment. The fibers are then washed and dried naturally in the sun or in dry ovens in winter. They then undergo a purification process and are combined with corn-based polylactic acid (also used in beauty treatments in humans!) and undergo a mechanical process to create a felt. The rolls are then sent to Spain or Italy for fine finishing.

To reach the final product, the coloring process is done through pigments certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and with subsequent application of a resin coating (so it is 85% biodegradable) to give more durability, mechanical and water resistance.
