New Trend Alert: Cork

00

We see cork bulletin-boards and wine stoppers and we don’t think twice. But from notebooks to watches, yoga mats and blocks to furniture and dinnerware, this amazing material is catching fire in a diverse, ever-expanding range of new products. Cork is derived from the bark of the Cork Oak tree, which grows mostly in the Mediterranean basin. When the bark is removed from a mature tree, the tree remains healthy and continues to grow, and this removal can be done 15-20 times over the course of a tree’s natural life. Cork is also fully biodegradable — making it an amazing 100% natural, highly renewable and environmentally-friendly material. Cork is light enough to float easily and durable enough to be used in the soles of shoes. It is elastic and will always naturally expand to its original size, as well as being completely impermeable to liquids and gasses, making it such a great drink-stopper. It is fire-resistant, hypoallergenic and a natural insulator. With all these amazing properties, we should really not be surprised to see cork showing up in an astonishing variety of products. From accenting drinkware or simple accessories, there are now countless notebooks, purses, clutches and cases, dinnerware and even furniture made entirely from cork! Your imagination really is the limit, and wherever your taste leads you, you can rest assured knowing you’ve made a cool and earth-friendly...
