What is CORK FABRIC?
Cork shavings removed from the bark of the cork oak tree are transformed into ultra thin sheets to produce cork fabric.åÊCork is a natural and sustainable materialåÊharvestedåÊåÊfrom cork oak trees every nine years without harming or killing the trees. The bark of the trees naturally regenerates, making cork a renewable resource. Cork is also recyclable and biodegradable.
ThisåÊcork fabric is sourced from Portugal, the world's number one cork producer. The manufacturer avoids the use of chemicals in the production process.
Cork fabric makes an ideal material for handbags because it is lightweight, soft, easy to clean, stain-resistant, and waterproof.åÊ
Why VEGAN LEATHER?
Eco-friendly vegan leather is aåÊsmart choice for aåÊleather alternative. This veganåÊleather is made from degradable polyurethane and contains pigments and chemicals that comply with EPA standards.
Polyurethane vegan leather offers a greener alternative to both vinyl (PVC) and to animal leather. åÊPVC is not degradable, leaches toxins in landfills and emits carcinogenic dioxins when incinerated. Animal leather production is a chemical-laden process.
Why ORGANIC COTTON?
TheseåÊcork bags are lined with 100% Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified cotton, which is produced in a Fair Trade Certified facility. The methods used to grow organic cotton have a low impact on the environment, and the materials used are free of toxic and synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Low-impact dyes and pigments are used in the printing process of these fabrics. Conventional chemical-intensive cotton production is detrimental to the air, water, and soil, as well as to the health of the people who live and work in the cotton-growing areas.
