We challenge you to find a more sustainable, cruelty-free and eco-friendly line of fashion accessories that boast the physical qualities of our premium cork fabric. Don’t worry, we’ll wait.
Our line of high-quality cork bags look and feel just like those made with premium leather. In addition to the above, here’s why our products are hands down the best vegan leather alternatives:
- Cork is lighter, softer and just as durable as premium leather
- Cork is waterproof, stain-resistant and easy to clean
- Cork is antibacterial, hypo-allergenic and even fire-retardant
Where on Earth does this material come from?
Our cork comes from our cork oak trees found in Portugal. Contrary to popular belief, harvesting the bark allows the trees to grow faster and live longer. That said, this process requires patience. Newly planted trees need over 25 years to be first harvested, and our farmers must wait another 9-10 years until the tree has made a full recovery to harvest again.
Our entire collection is ethically handmade in Portugal and PETA vegan approved. Our colors are made with organic vegetable dyes and there are no harmful chemicals or glues used in the making of our products.
.. And why isn’t anyone else using it?
That’s a good question! You’ll likely find cork in other forms, but few players are using it for high-quality fashion accessories. Our mission is to showcase this material by creating a line of amazing products, while maintaining a community-minded approach at a global scale.
We believe sustainability and style are great together.
