"CORK" THE ECO-FRIENDLY ALTERNATIVE

The fashion and manufacturing industry is an area where artisan made cork products have come to fruition in the last several years. We strive to find that look in the fashion industry that speaks to fashionable women and men with one of kind product in shoes, handbags, pochettes, clutch, jewelry, and wine accessories, home furnishings that are sought for everyday use, but eloquent for dinner parties and fashionable for the trend setters of today.

So why cork? Cork is a material that is 100% natural, biodegradable, renewable, sustainable, and eco-friendly. Due to its elastic, waterproof and fire resistant properties, cork is a material with immense potential of multipurpose usage in various types of products. Cork products will contribute more and more to a cleaner and sustainable world, with a very green solution in mind.

Cork comes from the cork oak, a tree native of the Mediterranean region and which extends to countries such as Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, northern Africa, and recently in Australia! Portugal alone provides more than 52% of the world’s cork production and the extraction method is completely eco-friendly to the tree. Harvesting is a process that does not harm the tree in any way. The bark is extracted entirely by hand, without any machinery, by skilled, trained technicians. The tree is not cut down, it´s surface does not suffer damages and the trees can last hundreds of years.

The cork oak tree can live to approximately 200 years old, being harvested for the first time at about 25 years old and then every 9 years thereafter. It takes a few years for the bark reach the minimum thickness required to provide the high quality cork we need for manufacturing of our high quality products. Along with the sustainability of cork production, it is important to know that growing, harvesting, caring and enhancing the planting of new cork trees is extremely important to and for our eco-system. We are proud to be part of this cycle to contribute to an eco-friendly world.

The workmanship, quality, and exotic cork material is artisan made with today’s fashion in mind at each step of the process.
