Cork is produced from the outer bark of the cork oak. It is extremely light, soft, floated, compressible and naturally resistant to fire and rot. The bark is extracted every 8-14 years without damaging the tree. The cork is then ground into fine granules and extruded into sheets.
The cork fabric is laminated with a textile support that makes it resistant, easily washable and therefore widely used in fashion, for example for the production of shoes, upholstery, bags, etc. The material can be sewn or glued to other materials and surfaces, embroidered and laser cut.
