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.
Piñatex fibres are the by-product of the pineapple harvest. No extra land, water, fertilizers or pesticides are required to produce them.
Piñatex involves a patented pending technology that protects both the process and the finished material.
