Cork: The New Leather
And we thought it was only good for wine! How we were wrong.
Cork is one of our favourite fabrics this season. With its versatile nature it’s no surprise cork is used throughout our brands' collections to create functional and beautiful pieces. A plant-based alternative to leather for bags, jackets, and shoes. Watch out leather, cork is coming for you.
We found these facts pretty interesting and we think you might too:
- Cork is naturally waterproof and fire resistant
- Portugal produces over 50% of the world's annual harvested cork
- Cork is used in over 60% of the world’s wine stoppers
- A Cork Oak Tree lives for 200 years and is harvested every 9 years
