Cork material – the vegan leather
Sustainable & vegan
As the bark of the cork oak, cork is a renewable, biodegradable raw material. The cork oak can grow over 300 years old and is peeled by hand about every 12 years during its life. This makes the tree more resilient and creates durable cork oak forests that prevent soil erosion, bind large amounts of CO2 and provide a very important ecosystem for many rare animals.
Durable & Unique
Cork material fabric, also called cork leather, is very tear-resistant, durable and water-repellent. The cork plates of the bark are bonded with an organic adhesive to form larger plates and cut thinly. Then they are put together like a jigsaw puzzle and applied to a fabric carrier material, sealed and can finally be further processed as cork fabric. Like leather, every cork fabric is a very special one-of-a-kind piece.
Easy to maintain
The care of cork products is done simply by gently wiping them with a damp cloth or sponge.
