Our Story

Eve Cork put down its roots in the cork forests throughout rural Southern Portugal. Our mission was to design high quality, contemporary products made to fit your modern lifestyle while keeping the greater good of our planet in mind.  

Cork was our solution.

The versatility and richness of our premium cork fabric caters effortlessly to both style and functionality. Our styles embody a timeless approach to fashion, blending classic design and artistry with the sustainability of our unique material.

Our Products

Eve Cork takes a natural approach to innovation, creating essential items with a modern flair. Our bags are staple fashion pieces first and foremost, with the added benefit of sustainability.

Our entire lineup is ethically handmade in Portugal and PETA Vegan Approved. Our cork fabric makes our bags soft, lightweight and just as durable as traditional leather while being waterproof and antibacterial. There is no need to treat your Eve Cork bag, making it the perfect everyday carryall to take you from day to night, or half-way around the world.

And because we work with organic material, the cork grain of each bag is unique to you.

Cork Harvesting

Cork harvesting requires patience – so it makes sense that Eve Cork products are not “fast fashion” items. Newly planted cork trees can require over 25 years of growth and care before their first bark harvest, making the process a time-honoured tradition often passed down from generation to generation.

After the initial harvest, our farmers strip off the outer layer of cork bark every 9-10 years once it has matured. This harvesting technique yields high-quality, raw material, and it is sustainable in that it allows our cork trees to grow larger and produce more bark for up to 300 years.

Sustainability

Simply put, our products are made with humanity and the well-being of our planet in mind. From how our cork is carefully hand-harvested, to how we practice business, sustainable actions that support a healthy Earth are at the core of what we do.

Cork trees are a natural renewable resource which requires their bark to be stripped in order to thrive. By purchasing an Eve Cork bag, you are honoring the past and investing in the future of the tree your bag came from.

Our cork is sustainably sourced, harvested, and processed in Southern Portugal by some of the region’s most established cork farming families. We nurture these roots and are committed to creating Eve Cork bags with a responsible, community-minded approach on a global scale.

We believe sustainability and style are great together.
