Cork is a fascinating product and 100% natural. Cork is the actual bark from off the Cork Oak tree, many of which live for over 300yrs with the majority of all forests positioned in Portugal.

Every year the bark grows creating a renewable and sustainable resource, making cork an ideal product in terms of the ever increasing demand for conservation of natural resources.
