According to @fash_rev the volume of water consumption by the fashion industry today is nearly 32 million Olympic-size swimming pools
We aim to reduce water waste by not using any additional water and instead washing our unbleached pineapple leaf fibre in the river. It's then hung on lines to air dry! 💦 Happy #WorldWaterDay!
Here's a clip from the Chinese documentary 'Land of Fruit' showcasing the process! 💚🍍

What does Piñatex mean to you? -
"Piñatex seems to be a product that has arrived at the same time as a great hunger for sustainable textiles - a fortunate meeting. To me, it feels like a flag-carrier for conscious and responsible choices. The Cradle-to-Cradle concept is very demanding, but has to be worth striving for; who knows what new, imaginative and healing solutions will be reached through making this natural, versatile and tangible product?" - Emma, General Manager
