Is cork sustainable?

Yes! Cork is 100% sustainable and eco-friendly!

Cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree, quercus suber, which grows mainly in the Mediterranean region. It is part of the periderm (skin) system that covers the stem/trunk of the tree.

It is a material that is 100% natural, recyclable, reusable and renewable. This is why it is regarded as a raw material of excellence with favorable consequences for natural resources and for Planet Earth. The material is dust and stain-repellent, anti-bacterial, washable and waterproof – which makes it wonderful for multiple applications.
