Discovering cork uses: 3 Handmade accesories brands


Bag by Herdentier

The use of cork as a substitute of leather and other materials is booming. Portugal and Spain concentrated its production worldwide. It is a versatile, durable, soft, breathable and waterproof material. Designers are making it colourfull with dyes and prints that give a unique style when creating accesories. In addition, this can be consider a material for sustainable consumption, is a part of a tree that can be extracted without causing damage to it and grows again over the years.

I would like to show you some examples of handmade small companies that prove the variety of applications that can be given in bags and accesories.

CORKOR (Handmade in Portugal)

A small Portuguese company running by Natalia and Vitor Lopes Guerreiro, located in Palmela, near Coruche, one of the largest cork producing areas worldwide. They refer to cork as a natural wonder. They handle the entire process of production of most of its products from design to craft creation. One of their goal is to create local employment, an example is their larger bags, handmade by a family in the area.
