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

We're based in Switzerland and that's also where the bags are made, in social workshops." -

Happy International Day Of the Woman! -
Whilst this is a day of celebration 🎉 for us it's also a reminder that 80% of garment workers are female and most are not paid fair living wages, have health insurance or any kind of maternity rights - there is still a lot do and we are excited to keep fighting for women's rights and a fairer industry! -
