Product Details

Pineapple leather outer - Piñatex® is a sustainably-produced plant based textile, developed according to the principles of a circular economy. The pineapple leaves that form the basis of Piñatex® are the byproduct of existing agriculture, so no additional land, water, fertiliser or pesticides are required to produce the raw material, and by adding value to a waste product provide an additional income stream to pineapple farming communities. No animal products are used at any stage of production, and, in line with the Cradle-toCradle® philosophy, production involves no harmful chemicals and minimal water use.

Care

Like any product, a #MadeFromPiñatex product needs regular care. We recommend caring lovingly for your product. / 1 Clean your product thoroughly and effectively using a cloth soaked in warm soapy water. If your item is heavily soiled, you can rinse with lukewarm water but never fully submerge the product as this may cause irreversible damage. / 2 Let your item dry before any application is made and refrain from using a heat source to dry more quickly, as this could cause damage. / 3 We recommend using a natural colourless wax for your #MadeFromPiñatex products. Apply a small amount to a dry, soft cloth and rub sparingly over the textile in a circular motion until fully absorbed. Do not use too much wax as it may not fully absorb. / 4 Leave your item to dry naturally for 24 hours after application. / 5 You can also buff the wax off with a dry cloth or soft brush.

Behind the Brand

Velvet Heartbeat

Velvet Heartbeat was created in 2017 by Suzie Eggleton, who had spent many years working in the fashion industry and in film costuming. After falling in love with leather accessories, Suzie set out to explore high quality, cruelty-free options that did not contribute to the harsh impact of the fashion industry.

Unsurprisingly, this was a tricky feat. So she began crafting her own label of handbags from upcycled vegan leather and plant-based textiles. Working from the sun room of her Auckland home studio with odd ends of fabric she’d collected over time, Velvet Heartbeat was born.
