It's about our planet. It's about animals. It's about time.

"Why on earth have you decided to quit your corporate job and go sell products made of cork Laurent?", I've been asked this question dozens of time in the past years...

Well, it is quite simple. I dedicated 15 years of my life working in the corporate world. Thanks to my previous job, our family has had the amazing opportunity to live and work in different countries: in France for 2 years, in Israel for 5 years and now in England.

Travelling is such an opportunity to be exposed to different cultures, people and interests, it makes me feel alive, truly.

Yet, whatever country I was visiting, there was too often one thing that was shocking me: how much people can waste... wasting water in hotels, wasting food in their all-inclusive business trips, wasting space by building carparks so big that you could park trucks instead, wasting our natural resources and the list goes on...

That's the little seed that was growing in my mind... I started to think about what we could do to contribute to a better lifestyle; how, at our level, we could help people wasting less and becoming conscious consumers.

Fashion is one of the most polluting industry in the world... Also, as a vegan myself, it was essential to find an eco-friendly alternative to animal leather.

I have always been amazed by cork (maybe because of my French roots and passion for wine!) but it is after extensive researches and a trip to Portugal that everything came into place.

Not only cork is a natural and sustainable resource, but making vegan accessories contributes to the rising cruelty-free fashion. It is about time that people understand the consequences of producing leather, how it harms the environment and of course the animals.

We believe in an eco and cruelty-free fashion. FRiLuk can help to change consumer's behaviour and that's what it is all about!

If like us you care about the environment, want to promote a more ethical fashion, then remember that you have always the choice... the choice of being a conscious consumer.
