Dr. Carmen Hijosa


Dr. Carmen Hijosa, the founder of Ananas Anam Ltd, is an ethical entrepreneur with a vision for a more sustainable future that connects people, environment and economy. With a background in leather goods design and manufacturing she worked as an industry consultant, and was brought to the Philippines by the Design Centre Philippines in the 1990s, where the journey of Piñatex began. Her perseverance in developing a natural, sustainable leather alternative saw her undertake a PhD in her late 50s at the Royal College of Art (U.K.), further developing Ananas Anam through the incubator program at InnovationRCA. Recognised as a creative leader through several awards, Carmen regularly shares her innovative views on sustainability at panels and events including TEDx talks.
