Carmen Hijosa is a Leather-goods expert. While consulting on the Leather export industry in the Philippines in the 1990’s, is when Pinatex was brought to life. As people are becoming more and more aware of the environmental pollution happening due to the making of fabrics, Carmen knew the chemical tanning for the mass production of leather should stop. Thus, she was driven to research a sustainable alternative. 

Motivated by the wealth of natural resources, counting the utilize of plant fibers in conventional weaving such as the tender Barong Tagalog garments (an embroidered long-sleeved formal shirt for men and a national dress of the Philippines), Carmen desired to make a new non-woven material that may be commercially delivered, give a positive social and financial affect and keep a more natural impression all through its life cycle.

Having the Mulberry Silk farmed through a production know as Sericulture, it is not considered a wild silk. It’s way of production makes it more like a fine cloth with an excellent matte shine instead of the shine of the traditional silk, thus giving us a beautifully rich Mulberry Silk.
