Authentic Roots designs and produces bespoke gifts, crafted from Pinatex - a trendsetting eco-friendly, sustainable and animal-friendly textile made from pineapple leaf fibres, as well as recycled materials. 

Our products range from stylish iPad/tablet sleeves, eco-design journals and customised accessories - all created using new-age pineapple leather (Pinatex) or recycled plastic PET bottles, as well as earth-friendly cotton totes and eye pillows. These items are produced locally, providing an income to local artisans and unemployed community members.

Authentic Roots Founder, Tanya van Rees, is a passionate humanitarian and an earth activist. She believes that good business supports local communities and lifts local talent, while also committing to sustainable solutions for the good of the environment.

We take inspiration from nature and from a philosophy that we should live more consciously, together.
