  • Cork leather, also known as natural cork fabric, is crafted from the bark of the cork oak tree (Quercus suber). Portugal, a major producer, accounts for approximately 34% of the world’s cork trees. Here’s how cork leather is made:

    • Harvesting: The outer bark is manually stripped from mature cork oak trees every 9 to 12 years. Remarkably, this process doesn’t harm the tree, as the outer bark regenerates. A single cork oak can be sustainably harvested up to 16 times during its two-hundred-year lifespan.

    • Drying and Cleaning: After harvesting, the cork is stacked and left to dry for about six months. It is then submerged in boiling water to clean it and enhance its unique properties.

    • Production: Thin sheets of cork are cut and attached to a fabric backing (usually cotton, polyester, or polyurethane). Unlike traditional leather, cork leather requires no tanning or finishing.

    • Dyeing: Cork leather can be dyed using nontoxic, sustainable dyes.

    • Protection: While fabric protection sprays can provide stain resistance, cork’s natural water-resistant properties often make this unnecessary. However, it’s essential to consider the material’s biodegradability.

    • Eco-Friendly: Cork leather generates minimal waste during extraction and processing. Even scraps can find use in other industries. Additionally, wastewater from production remains free from pollutants, unlike leather production.

    • Biodegradability: Natural cork material is 100% biodegradable and compostable.

    So, cork leather combines sustainability, functionality, and unique aesthetics. 🌿🍃
