This stuff is amazing.
What's your favorite plant? We know what ours is. The cork tree is not only fascinating, but also a game changer when it comes to sustainability. Our cork fabric is shipped directly to us from Portugal (the land of happy cork trees). We'd be really upset if these trees were cut down to make the fabric, but, lucky for us (and the trees), they aren't. The main ingredient in cork fabric is cork tree bark - and that's about it. The bark is simply pulled from the tree and causes very little, if any, damage to the actual health of the tree. Once the tree is de-barked (or shucked as we like to say) it's only a matter of time until a new healthy layer of bark grows back. The strength, durability, and look of cork fabric makes it truly the best leather alternative on the market. As you can see, almost every hat we make has at least one (but usually more) cork components. Cheers to the cork tree.
