Cork is simply an incredible material! Here's why:
To begin, cork production is environmentally friendly and considered sustainable. The harvesting process hasn't changed in centuries, the cork tree is not cut down to obtain cork; only the bark is stripped every 9 years to harvest the cork, so the tree happily continues to live up to 300 years. The sustainability of production and the easy recycling of cork products and by-products are two of its most distinctive aspects.
Cork forests also prevent desertification and the refuge of various endangered species. It is estimated that they hold a total of 14 million tons of carbon dioxide a year playing a significant role in the fight against climate change.
Now let's have a look at cork's properties. Get ready to be amazed.
Cork is not just water resistant, almost indestructible, stain resistant, anti-mite, antifungal and antibacterial, but it is also stretchy, breathable, hypoallergenic, light, smooth and warmer than leather, which makes it one of the most revolutionary materials. On top of that, cork leather requires no maintenance and it's super easy to wash.
We wholeheartedly believe that it's a necessity that we protect our forests and preserve our planet. With this mission in mind, EarthyAccents is proudly bringing you an eco-conscious collection of natural, organic, and vegan PETA-approved cork oak leather products to inspire your sustainable lifestyle.
