Ananas Anam

The Piñatex® we work with is a patented material developed by Ananas Anam. Inspired by the abundance of natural resources and the long-standing use of plant fibres in traditional weaving in the Philippines, Dr. Carmen Hijosa, the founder of Ananas Anam created a new, non-woven textile using pineapple leaf fibre, for a more sustainable future that connects people, the environment and economies. The production of Piñatex® also provides positive social economic impact while maintaining a low environmental footprint throughout its life cycle.

Khaloom

The recycled fabrics that we use in our inner linings come from Khaloom, a corporate that represents a group of passionate weavers based out of a weaver's colony in Bangalore, India. They use traditional handlooms to upcycle recycled yarns into high-quality fabrics. Their use of handlooms keeps the craft locally embedded, energy neutral, and culturally relevant. This helps shape a socially fair and circular economy around the textiles sector in India. It is pertinent to note that Khaloom not only pays their weavers 2-3 times the statutory minimum wage set in India, but also is a role model for women in the textile sector, which has otherwise been dominated by men in India.
