About Us - Piñatex. After pineapple harvest, the suitable plant leaves which are left behind are collected in bundles and the long fibres are extracted using semi-automatic machines.

About Us - Piñatex

The fibres are washed then dried naturally by the sun, or during the rainy season in drying ovens. The dry fibres go through a purification process to remove any impurities which results in a fluff-like material. This fluff-like pineapple leaf fibre (PALF) gets mixed with a corn based polylactic acid (PLA) and undergoes a mechanical process to create Piñafelt, a non-woven mesh which forms the base of all Piñatex collections. The rolls of Piñafelt are then shipped by boat from the Philippines to Spain or Italy for specialised finishing. To make the Original, Pluma and Mineral collections, the Piñafelt is coloured using GOTS certified pigments and a resin top coating is applied to give additional strength, durability and water resistance.

THE RHETORICAL APPEALS (RHETORICAL TRIANGLE) – The Visual Communication Guy. The rhetorical triangle is a common reference to the three rhetorical appeals identified by Aristotle: ethos, pathos, and logos.


These three Greek terms make reference to the primary concepts from which messages–in any communication channel–are created. Check out this diagram for a quick overview of the rhetorical triangle (and read below for more description): In English, the direct translation of ethos from Greek is “ethics.” But when we talk about the rhetorical appeals, “ethos” makes broader reference to what makes the speaker (person or organization) credible.
