Aalto Watch with Silver & Black Dial | Black Piñatex Vegan Leather Strap
The Aalto range elevates cruelty free style to a whole new level. Nautical design combined with minimalist features creates the perfect timepiece for every occasion. Each watch has a 40mm case in Votch's signature brushed finish that will arrive to you in its own eco friendly pouch and box.
The straps on this Votch are created from Piñatex, an innovative and sustainable fabric created from pineapple leaf fibres (how amazing?!). Piñatex is a by-product from the pineapple harvest and provides additional income for the farmers growing this wondrous fruit. No extra land, pesticides or fertilisers are used in the production of Piñatex, meaning Votch straps are not only good for animals, but for this beautiful planet we call home too.

Care: Please be aware that as Piñatex is a natural material we recommend you take extra special care of it. To keep your strap in top condition Votch recommends using a natural wax such as the clear dubbin. It’s best to leave the waxed strap in a warm location for 24 hours and then buff with a soft cloth. Then tell your strap you love it, because it came from pineapples and we think it deserves to be told.
Vegan & cruelty free.
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.
