Cork's one of the most sustainable materials in the world. The bark/cork peeled away by skilled harvesters grows back after nine years. It absorbs CO2 in the process & 3-5 times more than non-harvested trees! I know right, cork is bloody brilliant.
Preserving these biodiversity hotspots (rather than clearing them for unsustainable practices) protects the endangered species that live there. Not to mention that harvesting & manufacturing cork is a high paid job supporting rural communities.
‘CORKFUL - Cork For Mindful Living' is a limited edition range. Designed by myself, I then worked with harvesters/manufacturers in Portugal to bring these products to life.
