Soon, you might be wearing a pineapple - in some form.
Carmen Hijosa created a material called piñatex from the fibers of pineapple leaves.
Piñatex has been used by hundreds of fashion manufacturers to make clothing and shoes.
Altiir is a clothing company that makes jackets with the material, giving them a unique look and feel.
Unique means that someone or something is not like anyone or anything else. It is something or someone singular, without equal.
something singular: 並はずれたもの
without equal: 比類ない
