Motivated by a utopian vision of living in nature and the modern world, Altiir are creating luxury garments for today's conscious individual. Tapping into late 60's rock'n'roll counterculture of artists like Jagger, Bowie and Hendrix, who once inspired a revolution, to start a new one.
Through the engineered design of innovative, sustainable textiles into genuine, luxury garments, Altiir leads by example. Dedicated to taking positive action in the fashion industry, the brand does not compromise on quality, style or the essence of who they are.
This collection is a take on vintage, tailored biker jackets in a range engineered with strong and lightweight, pioneering pineapple material finished in a smooth metallic surface. Over time it moulds to your body and ages gracefully.
This collection of natural colours combines a remarkable pineapple alternative to leather with the finest components and hardware the luxury market has to offer. The strong leaf fibres create a unique and unconventional texture that is truly beautiful.
We aim to meet the challenges of our times by developing innovative products that are integrated with, and promote, social, ecological and cultural development. Our products are made with Piñatex®, an innovative natural textile made from pineapple leaf fibre. The leaves are the byproduct of existing agriculture, and their use creates an additional income stream for farming communities.
The long fibres are extracted through a process called decortication, which is done at the plantation by the farming community. The leaves are the byproduct of existing agriculture, and their use creates an additional income stream for farming communities. Once the leaves have been stripped of fibre the leftover biomass can be used as a nutrient-rich natural fertiliser or a biofuel, so nothing is wasted.
The fibres then get degummed and undergo an industrial process to become a non-woven mesh, which forms the base of Piñatex®.
The rolls of non-woven mesh are then prepared for specialised finishing. This unique process is what gives Piñatex® its leather-like appearance, creating a textile that is soft and flexible, yet very durable.
