As a relatively new leather alternative in North America, you may be wondering how our cork purses actually stand up compared to other materials when it comes to durability. “How long will one of your handbags last?” is a popular question that we get. Our answer always is, “a long time”.
When cork comes to mind, most people think wine stoppers, coasters and cork boards. That said, there are absolutely no similarities between the between the material used for our cork handbags and the cork shavings used to make those items.
Compared to genuine leather goods, our premium cork fabric is lighter, softer and more durable. It’s soft and supple just like leather, but it’s scratch proof, stain-resistant and even resistant to flames!
The other advantage that our cork bags have over leather and other vegan alternatives is that they are waterproof. Although getting stuck in the pouring rain isn’t ideal, but if you have an Eve Cork bag at your belongings will stay bone dry.
“I live in Vancouver and it rains all of the time here. Luckily, this backpack is big enough to fit my laptop and my lunch while keeps them dry on my bike ride to work. I love the look of it and my co-workers could not believe it was made from cork!” - Sarah O (Grande Genesis | Black)
