CORK

 

GENERAL

Cork is the bark of the cork oak tree that is extracted by hand in a harmless way, first after 25 years and thereafter in every 9 years without hurting the tree. Cork forests are mainly located over west Mediterranean area where the trees live on average of 200 years.

Cork is 100% natural, recyclable and sustainable material that has unique ability to absorb a lot of CO2 from the atmosphere. Moreover, it is lightweight, flexible and has a soft texture.

Cork fabric is an innovative ecological textile that is durable, abrasion and water-resistant. Our fabric is sourced and processed in Portugal, where the biggest cork oak forest are found. We are conscious about the environment and use residue fabric from the factory that is free from any substances which could harm nature or health.

 

CARE

 

Treat stains with soft cloth and warm water. For stronger stains use a bit of soap in the water. Allow it to dry naturally. Speeding the drying with any heat appliance or direct sunlight may damage the fabric.

Cork leather is a natural material, therefore, direct sunlight and rain may accelerate natural lightening. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.

Piñatex®

 

GENERAL

Piñatex® is an innovative natural textile made from pineapple leaf fibre.

 

Pineapple plant long fibres are extracted through a process called decortication, which is done at the plantation by the farming community in Philippines. Once the leaves have been stripped of fibre the leftover biomass can be used as a nutrient-rich natural fertiliser or a biofuel, so nothing is wasted. The fibres then get degummed and undergo an industrial process to become a non-woven mesh, which forms the base of Piñatex®. The rolls of non-woven mesh are then transported to Spain for specialised finishing.

 

 

CHARACTERISTICS

Piñatex® has a leather-like appearance that is soft, durable and water-resistant.
