BEHIND THE COLLABORATION
LIMITED-EDITION SHOES & BELTS MADE FROM PINEAPPLE FIBRES
For its first collaboration, The Forward Lab brings together Liwan and Pinatex.
Liwan, an institution for authentic, modern and luxurious house and loungewear where every piece is inspired by the past and adapted to the present thanks to the ancestral savoir-faire of artisans of the middle-east and Pinatex, an innovative material, used as a responsible alternative to leather.
Pinatex is a natural and patented new material, made from pineapple leaf fibres gathered by partner farming cooperatives in the philippines.
Pinatex fibers are the by-product of the pineapple harvest.
No extra land, water, fertilizer or pesticides are required to produce the base material.
