Cork shavings removed from the bark of the cork oak tree are transformed into ultra thin sheets to produce cork fabric. Cork fabric makes an ideal material for handbags because it is lightweight, soft, easy to clean, stain-resistant and waterproof.
Cork is a natural and sustainable material harvested from cork oak trees every nine years without harming or killing the trees. The bark of the trees naturally regenerates, making cork a renewable resource. The cork fabric comes from Portugal, the world's number one cork producer.
