Meet the Cork
The cork fabric is taken from the bark of the Portuguese cork oak tree, a renewable resource because the trees are not cut down to collect the cork, only the bark is peeled off to obtain the cork, as well as a new layer of cork peeled off the outside bark, the cork bark will begin to regenerate. Therefore, the cork collection will not cause any harm or damage to the cork oak.
Cork is one of the most sustainable products. Cork is very durable, impervious to water, vegan, environmentally friendly, 100% natural, lightweight, recyclable, renewable water resistant, abrasion resistant, biodegradable, and does not absorb dust, thus preventing allergies. No animal products are used or tested on animals.
The raw cork material can be harvested repeatedly in cycles of 8 to 9 years, with more than a dozen bark harvests from a single mature tree. During the conversion of one kilogram of cork, 50 kg of CO2 is absorbed from the atmosphere.
Cork forests absorb 14 million tons of CO2 per year, while being one of the world’s 36 biodiversity hotspots, home to 135 species of plants and 42 species of birds.
By using products made from cork, we are contributing to the fight against climate change.
Cork fabrics are made from 100% vegan, eco-friendly and natural cork. Most products are handmade, and these thin cork sheets are laminated to the fabric support backing using a specialized proprietary technique. Cork fabrics are soft to the touch, high quality and pliable. It is the perfect alternative to animal leather.
Cork is a very strong and flexible material. It can withstand a lot of pressure by stretching and then returning to its original shape. The cork fabric will not break or crumble. Just like animal leather, it will change and wear with age but will change with style.
Cork is a completely waterproof material and you can get it wet without fear.You can gently wipe the stain with water or soapy water until it disappears. Allow it to dry naturally in a horizontal position to retain its shape. Regular cleaning of the cork bag is the best way to improve its durability.
