Cork is an amazing eco friendly product extracted from the evergreen cork oak trees (Quercus Suber) that grow in Mediterranean countries, especially in Portugal. When a cork oak reaches 25 years old, a 2.5 cm thick layer of cork bark is extracted without damaging the tree or its ecosystem. After sterilisation, cork bark is pressed flat into thin sheets that are then laminated onto a textile backing support.
Cork is light, durable, water-resistant, wear-resistant, recyclable and biodegradable; has a lovely soft smooth texture and an amazing rustic look.
The famous Harris Tweed is a beautiful and intricate cloth made from 100% pure new wool, dyed, spun and woven by hand without the aid of automation or electricity by the skilled and experienced islanders at their homes, in the stunning Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
Harris Tweed is water and wear and tear resistant and cleans easily. It is a truly ecologically sound textile, with low-impact VOC (volatile organic compound) absorbent production process, non-allergenic and biodegradable.
Harris Tweed is the only fabric in the world governed by its own Act of Parliament.
