Cork is the bark of the cork oak, and is harvested through a decortication operation, which takes place cyclically every 9 years without breaking down or damaging the tree.
The precious raw material is then boiled, sterilized, selected and thanks to modern technologies is first transformed into blocks, and then into very thin sheets.
Depending on the various needs, this thin cork skin is then coupled with textile supports (cotton, silk, coagulated fabric, polyester, micro fibers, etc.), so as to obtain an extremely versatile, flexible, soft and resistant product.
The result is a natural and ecological fabric that can be used for the same applications as leather or fabric, available in a range of beautiful natural, printed or colored finishes.
These fabrics are made with modern systems that respect the environment, using natural materials free from formaldehyde and other substances that are harmful to health.
The natural texture of cork gives our products a characteristic chromatic effect that is particularly lived-in, which makes every single object unique.
It is a precious material with a thousand properties: 100% natural, breathable, antibacterial, anti-allergic, light, practical, washable, scratch-resistant, non-slip, stain-resistant, waterproof, heat-insulating and wear-resistant.
These qualities make it increasingly requested by many designers not only in fashion for making bags, shoes and accessories, but also in furnishings for upholstering chairs, armchairs, furniture and curtains, as well as in the nautical and automotive sector for upholstery and upholstery interior.
It is an ancient material worked in an innovative way, whose seductive, soft and velvety touch arouses profound emotions that lead back to the origins, to mother earth.
Don't hesitate any longer, enjoy the cork, wear nature!
