Piñatex® is an innovative fibre that has been developed as a sustainable alternative to both mass-produced leather and polluting synthetic materials. It is an ethically sourced, robust and water-resistant non-woven textile made from waste leaves of the pineapple plant. These leaves would typically be left on the ground as waste or burned. The production then requires no additional land, water or fertiliser, thus reducing the amount of pollution generated.
BOHEMA creates contemporary designs in timeless editions, dressed in innovative plant materials. They create for everyone who likes to express their own style, whilst appreciating the quality of craftsmanship. BOHEMA does everything with care for the environment and animals. The goal is to offer cruelty-free, sustainable alternatives, without toxic chemicals, phthalates and PVC.
Sizing - Sizes for Bohema shoes may vary from product to product. Please refer to cm and inch measurements below for more accurate sizing.
All components are 100% vegan. Shoes are hand made in Poland.
Piñatex: Pineapple leather, also known as Piñatex, was created by material innovation company Ananas Anam's Dr Carmen Hijosa. Crinkly in its texture, this vegan leather derives from the long leaves that grow alongside pineapples. The leaves would normally be discarded – pineapples only flower and fruit once, and at the end of that process, the leaves are considered waste. Ananas Anam's use of the leaves provides pineapple farmers in the Philippines, where their sources are located, with an additional stream of income. The leaves are transformed into leather by felting the long fibres together to create a substrate. The leftover biomass can also be used as a fertiliser.
Piñatex is made from 80% pineapple leaf and 20% polylactic acid fibres. The material is biodegradable in controlled conditions, but uses a coating made from petroleum resin, which the company is looking to replace with natural resins.
