In two lines, this is a Vegan Watch strap for your super cool Apple Watch. In elaborate terms, we are discussing how there is more use for Piñatex – a natural leather alternative that is made from pineapple leaves.
Many of you may be aware that the coconut tree is one such example, where all parts of it are used in some form or the other. For example, the leaves are woven into baskets, the husk of the coconut is used in the coir industry, whereas the fruit is consumed in totality – water, milk, pulp and oil!
Another such fruit is the pineapple. Piñatex is a natural leather alternative made from cellulose fibers extracted from pineapple leaves. Crafting an Apple Watch Strap – perhaps the World’s First pineapple strap!
The material is very ethical and sustainable, and makes for a great workaround for leather straps. What is very nice about its form, is that it looks great in all the different colors that the straps are available in. My favorite two are the Cheeky Silver and Paprika Red color option.

A Better Choice for a Better Future
Every year, the global leather industry slaughters more than a billion animals and about 13 million tonnes of waste from global pineapple agriculture every year.
Piñatex is made from the leaves of the pineapple plant, the byproduct of the fruit industry, which are traditionally discarded or burned. Adding value to this waste has created a new source of income for farming communities who otherwise rely on a seasonal harvest. Once the fiber has been stripped from the leaf the leftover biomass is retained to use as a natural fertilizer or biofuel, offering a further economic prospect.
