vegan alternatives made of cork for bags and purses. (PETA apporved vegan)
Local production in Portugal with Portuguese raw material.
Cork is a natural material obtained from the bark of the cork oak, which is mainly found in Mediterranean and Iberian areas. So no additional resources are needed to grow cork.
Cork can be hand-picked every six to nine years and retains the unique structure of the bark. By harvesting the bark, the oak can absorb approx. 30% more carbon and at the same time release more oxygen.
