Like iron wire, the hardness, and thickness that make up pineapple fibers can be used to create bendable and strong structures. Through the materialisation of a collection of samples, a new typology of form about foldability and structure used with a natural material has been created. The Fiber as a high specific stiffness, that quality make very difficult to connect the edges together. Spinning the pineapple yarn only with pineapple fiber is not use, mostly is spinn with cotton o silk. Still produce in low quantity, because of the high cost of production. The market is searching for a durable and economical solution to reuse the fibers reducing the price of manufacturing. The fabric has a natural gloss similar to silk, and is better in quality. This gloss protects the fibers and as a result, pineapple does not require any treatment with toxic chemicals.The yarn is delicate and requires skill and care to work with.
