Cork is nature’s versatile treasure. It is the outer bark of the cork oak
tree, grown predominately in the southern half of Portugal. Used in products
ranging from engine gaskets to wine corks, cork has adapted to the worlds
rapidly changing tastes and technology for over two hundred years.
Beyond the versatility of cork, it is also one of the most environmentally
sensitive materials available. This characteristic includes, not only the
organic techniques used to grow the cork trees, but also the manufacturing
processes, where much of the work is performed with traditional hand labor.
