Allure Sauvage offers the conscious sophisticated woman a plant-based alternative to leather craftsmanship. We have launched two collections, both made with Piñeapple leaf fiber: Piñatex. We have won both the Best Business Concept and the Best Progress Pitch of the CTI Entrepreneurship course in Geneva. We aim to bring positive change in the leather industry. By using innovative materials such as Piñatex and make beautiful, timeless pieces, we show that it is possible to avoid both leather and plastic for a smaller carbon footprint.
Being now based in Beijing, we would like to study the opportunity of launching the brand in China. The leather industry is highly polluting, by the way the leather is chemically treated but also beef cattle is one of the major producers of CO2. If we could turn the waste of the top 3 pineapple producers in the world and turn it into Piñatex, we could replace up to 50% of the leather market, without having to plant a single more pineapple!
