Other cork fabric shops may show you that cork fabric is the same everywhere. But it isn't. Cork fabric is made using very thin cork sheets glued to a fabric backing/support.

Depending on the backing used, we will have different cork fabric materials. So, not only the quality standards are different, but there are also differences in thickness, pliability, softness, etc.. And also the possibility of having double sided cork materials. Sustainability will also be different, being able to use a 100% vegetable totally changes the paradigm of cork fabric supply.

We also offer approximately 50 natural patterns and 25 dyed colors, two of the photos show you our incredible range of patterns and colors.

Our set of pre-cut cork leather scraps will help you to feel the differences between the backings/supports and decide which will be the best option for your work and also showcases part of the amazing range of our patterns and colors.

After shipping, we will send you a message with a catalog including our wide range of colors and patterns, technical specifications about each backing and also some commercial information.

We offer small cuttings, beginning at 20x50cm (7 7/8"x20") but also wholesale orders with a minimum order quantity of 10 linear meters/yards per reference.

We are proudly offering a 100% Portuguese product, from the raw material to the skilled and technical know how. Due to a partnership with a local factory we are able to offer wholesale prices. Folclore Crafts provides commercial and technical support and our partner is responsible for manufacturing and shipping wholesale orders. We are open to developing personalized products.

To know more about cork fabric, backings, other sizes (including by the meter/yard and wholesale), uses, pattern and color options or cleaning and maintenance, check and read carefully this listing where you'll find important information:

But if you need even more information, please get in touch, we love to talk about cork... And we have many documents that may help you, like a catalog, FAQ and technical datasheets.

* cork fabric and cork leather are only different names for the same product

AMAZING selection! I ordered cork samples from a few shops, and the quality of this cork surpasses the rest by far. Not to mention the natural-backed fiber which is hugely important. Shipping to the US is crazy no matter what is ordered lol. it’s to be expected since it’s 2020 and the limitations via mail are just part of life. Gabi was super nice & very helpful via messages- would definitely recommend :)

Truly a wonderful set of items, from a wonderful shop run by a wonderful and friendly person. Great experience, highly recommended. My only 'issue' (if you can really call it that) is that I am now spoilt for choice as far as what kind of cork to go with for my intended projects haha. All of it is so awesome, even the ones that I thought would look a bit 'odd' turned out to look amazing in person.

I love everything about this purchase! The cork samples arrived nearly a week ahead of schedule, and it's such a huge help to be able to see/touch them all in person before making a decision on what to order. Which brings me to the only downside...I will never be able to choose. I want them ALL! I started my search for cork because I needed a material for one particular project, and the colors, patterns, and backings in this bundle have added at least a dozen new projects to my to-do list since they arrived an hour ago. I already can't wait to place my next order with Folclore Crafts :-)

Samples were exactly as described, excellent quality and arrived on time. The variety of patterns and backings is terrific, I’ll definitely be ordering cork fabric from Folclore Crafts in future!
