Pineapple Leather Bag - Black
It's what everyone is raving about! Pineapple leather. A revolutionary vegan fabric challenging the leather industries harmful effects on the enviornment and cruel animal practices. It is strong and hardymaterial made from cellulose fibres extracted from pineapple leaves which is a byproduct of existing agriculture, so no additional land, water, fertiliser or pesticides are required to produce the raw material and by adding value to a waste product provide an additional income stream to pineapple farming communities. No animal products are used at any stage of production, and, in line with the Cradle-toCradle® philosophy, production involves no harmful chemicals and minimal water use. At this stage this amazing fabric is still quite rare and quite expensive, but not for long as it seems to be the future!
This beautiful bag is handmade by Auckland maker Velvet Heartbeat and has glossy silver fixtures. It is fully lined, and fully fab. The pineapple leather is more textured looking than ordinary leather.
