The cork tree is the most abundant tree found in Portugal, which is responsible for producing roughly half of the world’s cork each year. Cork trees can live over 200 years, only harvested once they reach maturity and extracted up to 20 - 30 times throughout their lifetime. The day of extraction in Portugal is called Tiradia, which is where the story of the brand begins.
Naturally Sourced Materials
Cork comes from the bark of the cork tree known as Quercus Suber or in Portuguese, sobreiros.
Sustainably Sourced Materials
Since cork is harvested by hand, the extraction process is delicate and respectful to the cork tree. Cork trees are not cut down the way that other trees are cut down for paper goods. Instead, the cork regenerates on the trunk of the tree for repeated extractions every 9 years.
Cork is a very durable material making it a great option for housewares and accessories and an easy replacement to leather goods.
