Cork fabric is obtained from the outer layer of the bark of the cork oak. The first harvest of the cork oak can be made 20 years after the plantation of the seedling. After each harvest, cork oak renews its valuable bark and the tree is harvested every 9 years for as long as its lifetime which is nearly 200 years. The bark of the tree is separated from the tree through a special harvesting method. After various processing phases, it is made into a fabric of different designs. The peeling of the bark does not harm the tree, on the contrary, it helps to prolong its life.

Cork is a 100% natural, reusable, recyclable material which when looked from a social and economic standpoint, can be one of the world’s most versatile materials. As peeling the bark does not require the tree to be cut down, it creates a very unique situation in terms of sustainability. Cork Oak forests are also the natural absorber of CO2, which is the biggest cause of global warming. It is estimated that these forests can hold up to 14 million tons of CO2 every year, and reduce the greenhouse gas effects in the atmosphere, which is the main cause of climate change. So cork Oak forests are perfect examples for the balance of the protection of environment and sustainable development.
