THE SKIRT  in ´pineapple leather` is our sustainable take on the essential leather skirt. The skirt is slightly a-line for a flattering shape and comes in the popular midi-length. The Pineapple skirt has side pockets for extra comfort and casualness and has a silver exposed zipper in the back as finishing touch.

The Pineapple skirt is our THE SKIRTway of showing a really amazing new material as an alternative to the classic leather skirt. It is fully vegan and made of natural fibers. (no petroleum!) Piñatex is innovative natural, non-woven material made from pineapple leafs, which are left-overs from the agricultural industry!  It’s a more sustainable alternative to leather and petroleum based textiles. The fabric behaves as leather and is almost as strong as leather. Compared to petroleum based faux leathers it’s much stronger. Additionally it has a higher quality and therefor lasts longer.

Custom fit: Fill in your sizes closest to your standard size. Adjust the measurement in the size charts for the perfect fit. Fill in your height and we adjust the length of the skirt automatically to your height. It’s easy to get a perfect fit!

    Love my pineapple skirt. It fits perfectly on my waist and hips. That is often a problem for me with leather/more stiff skirts and actually in general with trousers. I feel pretty cool wearing this skirt. And I love the fact that it’s made of actual pineapple leafs!
