Cork Oak, is grown in ‘The Montado’ (cork forests) in Portugal, Spain and a few other Mediterranean countries. It has been known to exist for centuries. The best thing about cork fabric it that the tree is not harmed or damaged during the harvesting process. Harvesting occurs in the Spring/ Summer months and is done by highly skilled workers. Each tree has a rotation cycle of 9 years, this allows for the bark of the Cork Oak to regenerate ready for the next harvest.
The construction of Cork fabric is a story of patience, skill and precision; thin sheets are carefully place by hand onto a “backing” fabric like organising the blocks in a Patchwork Quilt. For a smoother texture some of the sheets are hand sanded, then a protective finish is applied to give a high-quality gorgeous product.
Important- each bag is unique and a one off. The combination of colour changes with every one made. You can ask for a particular colour combo to be made especially for you. This takes 3 weeks from the time you approve the colour fabric swatch photos. Message Vivii for more info.
