A BIT ABOUT US
Authentic Roots designs and produces eco and animal friendly bespoke gifts and plantable children story books.
Bespoke gifts are made from trendsetting pineapple leather, recycled plastic and cotton material and the plantable story book is educational, made from recycled paper, embedded with lettuce seeds.
All our products are local, supporting local artisans.
Our eco & animal-friendly products are designed and created using Pinatex (a natural, sustainable, earth and animal-friendly textile made from pineapple leaf fibers) and fabric made from recycled plastic PET bottles, as well as 100% cotton totes and eye pillows.
