The Wonders of Cork

Why Cork?

For some time now we have been wanting to find a natural leather alternative - one that works with our love for texture and which is visually stunning in its own right. Cork has always been a firm favourite and for the past few years we have been secretly testing and sampling cork ‘leathers’ alongside other contenders to ensure they make the perfect material for our goods.

We’re so glad to say that all that testing was worth it!

We have found Cork to be so resilient. The material we source from Portugal is completely different to that of the cork you imagine from your wine bottles or coasters. We have manipulated it and attempted to tear it and failed - it is the opposite of brittle! It also has a natural water resistance, making it a great alternative to leather.

Despite its good looks and tests of strength, cork is a renewable material. Cork is made from very thin bark shavings from the cork oak tree, ensuring that the tree suffers no damage at all. As a material, cork is eco-friendly, 100% natural, renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. It's soft, lightweight, versatile, impermeable, insulating and very durable, dust and dirt repellent.

We really hope you love the new collection as much as we do! And we are so pleased to be able to provide a vegan alternative which we know our fans have wanted for some time. You can find our hip flasks, key fobs and card holders in cork below and keep an eye out for wallets, water bottle covers and patches coming soon!

Business Life

Instagram

Most of our daily endeavours can be seen over on Instagram and in our Instagram Stories. We love being able to share with you snippets of our work behind the scenes, how things are constructed as well as our inspirations and developments. 

We are going to endeavour to work on this new blog to help bring that slice of life to everyone who visits our website as well - but with a more in depth insight (and more words - is that a good thing? I guess we shall have to wait and see...). With articles on what makes us tick, what we are currently working on and doing and to showcase some projects. Who knows where it will take us!
