Our cork collection is made using the finest cork, harvested from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) -certified cork forests in Portugal, respecting the natural cycle of the cork oak trees.
A cork tree is harvested, not cut down. The cork oak tree can be stripped from its bark every 9-12 years. The harvesting process does not harm the tree; On the contrary, a harvested cork oak tree absorbs up to five times more CO2 – a greenhouse gas that causes climate change – than a non-harvested one. Harvested trees live longer, up to three centuries.
Cork oak trees in Portugal alone help offset 10 million tons of carbon every year.
This important source of livelihood in the rural areas is a profession for the patient. It takes at least 25 years for the first harvest – interlinking the environment with centuries and generations.
