Why do people from all around the world use pineapples to make fabric prints and household decorations from door knockers to vases?
There is more than one answer to this question, but for starters, pineapples were precious.
Yes, they still are, but with modern cultivation and transportation methods, we can procure this prickly fruit far more easily than a couple of centuries ago!
Because of their rarity and value, if a pineapple was presented as a gift of welcome, it was an added symbol of how important your presence was to your hosts. It was the big way to say, “You are Welcome”.
We have some pineapple print apparel here at Eternal Creation- all fair trade made by the tailors at our center in the Indian Himalayas.
