Cork is the raw product of cork oak trees. A more familiar recognition of cork would be the material used for wine stoppers. The fact that no cork tree is ever cut down makes it the most ecological material of its kind. This specific product is not only natural but also unique, with many features making it so. In its natural form, cork is completely water-resistant and anti-fungal. The porous structure gives it an incredible lightness and flexibility. Strong and durable, cork is resistant to abrasions and is fireproof. With its softness and versatility, it's no wonder cork is known as nature's leather.
