What is cork?
Cork is the bark of the cork oak tree. It's an unique and very special raw material. One that men, with all it's studies and technology couldn't yet replicate in all its greatness and excellence.
Cork's ability to retain CO2, hence reducing greenhouse gas emissions, makes this natural wonder one of the most eco-friendly and sustainable natural resources.
Cork is a 100% sustainable product. To harvest the cork no tree needs to fall! The harvesting is done by specialized professionals and the tree is not damaged during the process. It’s just like shearing a sheep! In the following 9 years after each harvesting the cork oak will regenerate its bark and the cork will acquire a smoother texture. Considering the life of an oak tree is on average 200 years, each tree can be harvested around 17 times.
