Updates

I design and make the cork wallets I sell in the shop. I’m starting to create my own prints in the Cork. This print will come soon.
I make the items I sell. I use only high quality materials for items that last. With many shops just reselling factory made bags and wallets be sure to choose quality. Most of my items are one of a kind and designed by me.
Choose uniqueness!
Cork Wallets make a great Holiday Gift!! Order yours on time. I can ship directly to recipient when you use their address during purchase. You will have the option to choose to include a canvas pouch and card as shown. I will be setting it soon.

Sewing High Quality Bags and wallets with Lots of Love

Hi,
My name is Norma I. Agrón. I've been sewing since I was a little girl. My grandma and mom taught me. Even while studying engineering in College I took some time to sew my own clothing. Later on I made clothing for my two daughters.

During 2012 I decided to start sewing bags. I researched different techniques and practice a lot making bags for relatives and friends. I've found that designing and making handbags puts together my love and knowledge of math, geometry, color theory, sewing and creativity to make something very useful, beautiful and long lasting.

My mission is to make handbags that are unique, are responsibly made and last. My bags are made professionally from my home studio. I only use high quality materials. I use cork and 100% cotton fabric. The result is a product that will make someone happy and proud to carry their belongings in a very stylish and well made bag.

LEARN ABOUT CORK
Cork is harvested from the Cork Oak tree without having to cut the tree. When the Cork Oak has reached 20 years of age, the bark is stripped from the tree by the hands of a highly skilled harvester. That tree is then marked so that it will not be harvested for another 8-10 years. The Cork Oak is the only tree that benefits from the removal of its bark and, since it regenerates, it is truly an eco-conscious and sustainable natural resource. In fact, the same tree can be harvested every 8-10 years for over 200 years! When the bark is harvested it actually prolongs the life of the tree. Once harvested, the tree absorbs about 5 times the CO2, making harvesting an important process in reducing greenhouse gases.
Once the cork is harvested from the Cork Oak it is boiled, dried, shaved into thin sheets and sealed with a non-toxic sealant. These slices are then backed with a fabric support backing. Cork "fabric" or "leather" won’t crack or crumble. Once the cork fabric is complete, it is strong, flexible, stain-resistant, water-resistant, hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, lightweight, incredibly soft, and flame retardant. Cork leather production is chemical-free. So cork "leather" is a great eco-conscious and vegan alternative to animal leather. Be aware that the material will show some color variations that might appear to be stains and it also has little "cuts" and marks that are part of the beauty and uniqueness of cork being a natural material.
To keep your vegan cork bag or wallet in good shape, you can wipe it down with a clean gentle cloth, a little liquid soap and water.
