Cork is natural, recyclable and reusable material. Cork oak trees are harvested every 9 years and the raw material comes from the outer bark of the cork tree, which grows mainly in the Mediterranean region.
Sustainable - Regular stripping of the cork tree strengthens its ability to absorb carbon dioxide. A stripped cork oak absorbs five times more CO2. It is estimated that, every year, cork oak forests retain up to 14 million tonnes of carbon dioxide.
Waterproof - Cork is practically impermeable to liquids and gases. Its resistance to moisture enables it to age without deteriorating.
Hypoallergenic - Cork does not absorb dust, so it helps protect against allergies and does not pose a risk to asthma sufferers.
Lightweight - A vegetable tissue that weights only 0.16 grams per cubic centimeter.
