Cork leather is a 100% natural, vegan and eco-friendly material made from the bark of the Cork Oaktree. Once the cork is harvested from the cork oak its stacked onto concrete pallets and left to dry for a minimum of 6 months. After it has dried, the cork is boiled and steamed for sterilization, flattening and elasticity. Heat and pressure is applied to press the cork into blocks, later shaved into thin sheets. These sheets are sealed with non-toxic sealant and adhered to a fabric support backing, because of this simple and natural production, cork fabric retains all the qualities of raw cork.
Dyeing to achieve the many colours is by use of vegetable dyes and vegan acceptable glues.
