These magnificant Apple Watch bands are made from pineapple leaves

Get fruity with one of Mezando’s magnificant Apple Watch bands. Made from pineapple leaves, they’re super-sustainable and available in a range of styles and color options.

They offer all the charm and durability of a leather strap, but without the obvious drawbacks.

Who knew pineapple leaves could be so pretty? Mezando did, so it used them to create a range of ethical Apple Watch bands ideal for vegetarians, vegans, and anyone else who wants an attractive strap.

Just like leather bands, Mezando’s are robust, weather-resistant, and supremely comfortable so you can wear them all day long. They also come in a range of finishes for every occassion.

The big difference is no animals were harmed in their making.

Mezando uses the miracle of Piñatex

Obviously Mezando didn’t just grab some pineapple leaves, paint them different colors, and add Apple Watch adapters. That would be crazy. Instead, the company uses something called Piñatex.

Piñatex is a material made from cellulose fibers extracted from pineapple leaves. It not only makes great bands, but it’s also great for the planet in a number of important ways.

First, it means fewer pineapple leaves — which are rarely put to good use — are burned. Even the left over biomass that isn’t used in Piñatex gets turned into fertilizer of biofuel, so it’s not put to waste.

In addition, Piñatex manufacturing requires no toxic chemicals, and it offers farming communities an additional source of revenue that simply wasn’t there before.

Pineapple leaves make for great Apple Watch bands

Pineapple bands are great for you, too. They’re supple and lightweight, so they feel great on your wrist, and they’re just as versatile as leather and other common materials.

Fantastic Watchband!

Had my eye on this watchband for a while, and finally found someone who had it in stock! Excellent fit, though a little snug (I have large wrists). Excellent quality! If you're interested in a Twist-O-Flex for your Apple Watch, definitely check it out. Only thing that would make it better is if I could add like three links to it, but again, this would be for my personal preference.

It’s beautiful


Really nice case for my iPhone 12

This case looks and feels great -- and it fits the phone perfectly! It seems to give really good protection to the edges and corners. As another reviewer noted, the bottom is left open for the speakers and charging port....I don't see this as an issue, but your milage may vary.

I usually just carry my ID in the back pouch, but I think I could get a couple of credit cards in there, too. Overall, this is a pretty darned nice case for my phone.


This is a birthday gift for my daughter who has an Apple Watch. I haven't given it to her yet since it's 4 months away (and I don't own one so I can't attest to how it fits) but it's really well made and looks terrific. She's an Apple-holic like me so I know she'll love it.

Looks like real MOP

The case is pretty, light weight and semi-flexible and has the visual depth, shine and appearance of real, black MOP. What you see in the picture is what you get in real life. It’s good looking, sophisticated and perfectly compliments my black iPhone 12 mini. I also like that it is a one piece design and that the edges of the case are slightly elevated around the face and camera openings so that you get a tiny bit of bumper protection (without the bulk of an actual secondary outer rim bumper) in case you drop it. I also like that it has a shiny finish so that, while it’s not “slippery,” it still slips in and out of my purse or pocket easily enough without dragging against any of my stuff that has a cotton lining, like some of the rubber or silicone cases tend to do. I don’t feel like I have to fight with it to get it into or out of a small space. Overall good looking, functional phone case. I like it!
