Cork, a sustainable and unique raw material, has a long history in Portugal. In recent years, it has played a central role in the production of Luggage, Backpacks and Accessories, offering a combination of style, functionality and environmental awareness.
Cork is harvested from cork oaks, native trees that cover vast areas of the country. This extraction process is done sustainably, allowing cork oaks to continue to grow and produce cork for many decades. The extraction of cork from cork oaks is done so as not to harm the normal development of the trees and takes place with the necessary care for their survival. The first cork harvest takes place when the tree is between 25 and 30 years old and thereafter every 9 years.
This eco-friendly practice makes cork a renewable resource, much appreciated in the modern era. It is also hypoallergenic, lightweight and easy to clean, making it a practical choice for everyday life. It offers an ecological alternative to traditional leather, promoting more sustainable and ethical fashion.
Cork Bags, Backpacks and Accessories have gained popularity due to their elegant and unique appearance. The natural texture of cork, combined with its warm, golden tone, creates products that are visually distinct and very pleasant to the touch. Cork is a natural, ecological, water-resistant, light and durable product, making it a practical, differentiated and sustainable choice for fashion items.
