Pineapple is not just a fruit but can also be clothes and shoes. A Spanish businessman spent almost eight years developing a new textile named Pinatex. Carmen Hijosa is the founder of Ananas Anam, a company that markets Pinatex.


"Piñatex is a new textile material made from pineapple leaf fibers, which is a waste from pineapple harvesting," Carmen said.


Hijosa works with pineapple farmers in the Philippines who harvest and extract fiber from their leaves.


"Because of its characteristics, pineapple leaf fibers are very smooth, strong and flexible," Carmen said


Since launching it commercially in mid-2015, Piñatex has been used by around 500 producers, including a recent collaboration with renowned fashion brand Hugo Boss who made a pair of vegan sneakers.



Pakaian dan Sepatu dari Serat Daun Nanas



Nanas bukan sekadar buah tapi juga bisa menjadi pakaian dan sepatu. Seorang pengusaha Spanyol menghabiskan hampir delapan tahun untuk mengembangkan sebuah tekstil baru yang diberi nama Pinatex. Carmen Hijosa adalah pendiri Ananas Anam, perusahaan yang memasarkan Pinatex.


"Piñatex adalah sebuah bahan tekstil baru yang dibuat dari serat daun nanas, yang merupakan limbah dari panen nanas," papar Carmen.


Hijosa bekerja dengan para petani nanas di Filipina yang memanen dan mengambil serat dari daunnya.


"Karena karakteristiknya, serat daun nanas sangat halus, kuat dan fleksibel," ujar Carmen


Sejak meluncurkannya secara komersial pada pertengahan 2015, Piñatex telah digunakan oleh sekitar 500 produsen, termasuk sebuah kolaborasi baru-baru ini dengan merek fesyen ternama Hugo Boss yang membuat sepasang sneaker vegan.
