About Karmiliege

Sales 358
On Etsy since 2018

The story of a meeting ..

It all started in 2012 during a trip to Portugal where I discovered cork in a completely different way and learned that this country was the cork specialist.

I was surprised by the softness, refinement and flexibility of the few cork bags that I could discover, but also and especially by the ecological impact of this material.

Back in France, my desire to share my crush with you, pushed me to try the adventure KARMYLIEGE, which became in 2012, the first French brand of cork fashion accessories.

Self-taught and supported by my seamstress grandmother, I started by making my own jewelry in my workshop Bordeaux and a few pockets.
In 2013 followed a second trip to Portugal where I met Leonardo, one of the best Portuguese leather craftsmen. Eager to offer a very good quality finish, I made the choice to entrust the sewing of my bags to Leonardo.

From this beautiful meeting was born my first collection of bags and portfolios made of cork. The combination of Portuguese know-how and French elegance!

Today, whether you are looking for crafts, French creations, alternatives to leather, bags or natural jewelry, KARMYLIEGE offers a wide range of bags and accessories in cork, distinguished by their style and quality finishing.

Karmyliege is a know-how, rigor and quality highlighting high-end crafts combined with cork excellence.
Sustainable development and the protection of nature are also core values ​​of the brand, since the manufacture of cork accessories is totally respectful of our planet, cork oak forests and animals.
KARMYLIEGE has received Vegan approval from PETA, the world's largest animal rights organization.

Hope to share with you this beautiful adventure and discover that trendy but ethical fashion is possible!

See you soon on the online store,
Karina

Instructions d'entretien

Une matière naturelle qui mérite que l'on prenne soin d'elle, simplement. Le liège est naturellement imperméable. Nettoyez votre accessoire simplement avec un chiffon doux et humide et éventuellement un peu de savon, de préférence doux. N'utilisez pas de produits pour le cuir, ni de produits chimiques agressifs. Cela abîmerait le liège.
