It’s Perfect For You We love it & why you should too...
Cork is incredible, the ultimate natural resource. It has so many amazing properties and is totally eco. It’s grown and harvested naturally from cork oak trees in the Montado forests in Portugal and then harvested by hand every nine years without harming the tree.
These forests act as a green lung for the planet. The cellular structure of cork is even similar to the alveoli structure of human lungs.
Cork is a living, breathing material. Cork oak forests absorb a huge 32 million tons of CO2 each year. The oak trees in Portugal alone help offset 10 million tons of carbon every year.
THE PROPERTIES OF CORK
Apart from looking a feeling lovely, eco cork has excellent elasticity, compressibility and resilience as well as thermal insulation.
Some of its other key properties are:
– Heat resistant
– Easy to clean.
– Soft to touch
– Lightweight and hypoallergenic
It’s a perfect raw material that no industrial or technological processes have yet been able to replicate.
We use organic cork for a lot of our eco friendly homewares however our first cork products were our signature cork placemats and coasters. These are still considered a firm favourite of ours and with unique designs inspired by nature, they look great in any style of home.
