Cork Leather

What is Cork Leather?

Cork leather is a natural, eco-friendly material made from the bark of cork oak trees. It's durable, soft, and flexible, making it an ideal material for a variety of applications, including furniture upholstery, purses, shoes, and more. This vegan leather is also water-resistant and has antibacterial properties, making it a great choice for products that come into contact with skin, like clothing and cosmetics.

How is Cork Leather made?

Cork leather is made by stripping the bark from cork oak trees and then tanning it to create a durable, flexible material. The process begins by harvesting the outermost layer of bark from the tree, which grows back naturally and doesn't damage the tree. The bark is then soaked in water for several weeks to loosen the fibers before it's stripped from the tree.'

The stripped bark is then boiled in a solution of water and chemicals to remove any impurities and prepare it for tanning. After tanning, the cork fabric is dyed and finished to create a variety of colors and textures.
