I read somewhere that pineapples used to be insanely expensive in Britain, as they were a novelty item imported from the colonies in the New World. Not that people ate them, but that they used to carry one around under their arm at parties as a status symbol.
As hilariously ridiculous as that sounds, I came across this video that that puts a new spin on the use of pineapples as a modern fashion item.
Personally, I’m not ethically opposed to leather. If we’re killing cows for food, keeping and using their hides for clothing seems to me to be perfectly logical. However, any use of something that is normally thrown away and which generates additional income for those who need it is, in my opinion, great.
I’d rather have pineapple shoes than crocodile ones. Though, not the white and gold ones that show up on the video screenshot, please. I don’t think those are for anyone over the age of 10. The others in the video seemed nice enough!
