Piñatex is a natural and sustainable non-woven textile made from pineapple leaf fibres. They are the by-products of the pineapple harvest grown by farmers in the Philippines. No extra land, water, fertilizers or pesticides are required to produce them. Piñatex is a wonderful vegan alternative to leather and as well as being strong, it is soft, light and flexible.
Tempy Osborne, founder of Grey Whale, is an Irish artist, designer and maker living in Brussels, Belgium. She holds a BA in fine art from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. Tempy was raised surrounded by nature on the Atlantic coast of Ireland and spent a year living in the remote Canadian Arctic as a young child. ‘I think there can be a big disconnect from the natural world and city life, for me I need to remind myself of this connection we all have with nature and simplicity. So I try to mix simple linear, geometric urban inspired shapes with more natural forms to create the original designs I then print on fabric.’
Grey Whale believes we shouldn’t have to choose style, quality and function over conscience. It is one of the few truly sustainable and ethical accessory brands on the market with each piece handmade in Belgium using the best ethically sourced eco friendly materials. This collection has been carefully crafted using Piñatex - the new sustainable, ethical and eco friendly leather alternative made from pineapple leaves normally discarded after the fruit harvest. Interior patterns inspired by natural forms have been screen printed from hand drawn designs in the Grey Whale studio in Brussels using non-toxic water based ink.
