Goods made from leather-alternative Pinatex, designed by Carmen HijosaNot only is it cruelty-free but environmentally friendly in the sense that it is generating less waste than leather and does not require additional land to be produced. We absolutely love the sneaker samples made from Pinatex by Puma and Camper. More here. /Ada Källgren

We’re always looking twice at credible leather alternatives and these product prototypes made from pineapple fibre Pinatex quite caught our eye. With a similar appearance to canvas, the pineapple byproduct can be dyed, printed, and treated to give different types of textures and closely resemble leather.

Sylvie KOENIG: This is absolutely fantastic. The shoes and the bags look stunning! At last a real option for vegetarians and vegans! I love it… I want those golden sneakers. Can't wait to get my hands on a pair of those and more. What a clever creation this pinatex is.
