We are just mad over Portugal based design company, Corkor! From ipad cases to jewelry they make everything from the abundant supply of cork found in their country, talk about eco-friendly! We asked Corkor’s partner Natalia Guerreiro a few questions about their fantastic, good for the earth, line:
How did Corkor get started?
We love nature, recycling, sustainability and ethical style and fashion products, so, we created Corkor with an eco-friendly philosophy with environment in mind.
As Portugal has the largest cork oak landscape in world, we have decided to offer our customers natural, sustainable and eco-friendly products made of cork.
What’s the skinny on Cork?
We use cork, yes, cork from the trees. Cork is a vegetarian leather, it is harvested from cork oak tree every 9 years without harming or killing trees and then the bark regenerates, making it a renewable and sustainable resource.
What inspires you and Corkor?
The nature, forests, happiness, the world, beauty, fashion pieces, all our pieces needs to be practical, ethical and good to use on a daily basis.
Any other cool facts about your shop and you as an artist?
We are working with natural color of cork and brown color, we look forward to have other colors in a short period of time, we will also have new pieces, but it is a secret yet. 😉
