Eco Friendly Cork Fabric

Cork production methods continuously change, yet harvesting practices remain. Such a fine example of merging cultural respect with new technologies is Corx. This is a company in Sonoma, California with production in Portugal. There they make a new material, cork fabric. The fabric is organic and renewable, with characteristics similar to leather.

Features are:
  • Durable and supple as leather
  • Silky-soft to the touch
  • Easy to clean
  • Stain and scratch resistant
  • Water resistant
  • Lightweight
  • Impervious to fading
  • Tolerant to extreme heat
  • Unique due to the nature of cork
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Versatile; they go with everything!
Wow, feels sensual just writing about it! In summary, Corx claims their eco-friendly fashion accessories are made without harming cork trees, animals, or the environment, ‒  in any way.

Sheets are made from thin strips of cork to create a fabric that is similar in many ways to leather. The sheets are then hand-sewn together to create the Corx bags. Each is made one at a time in small shops located throughout the cork-growing region of Portugal.

As pics here reveal, the Corx handbags and wallets look divine and luxurious. If cork fabric equates to such durable eco-style, I want to know what other goods consumers may expect?
