It is Cork time! We have a cork line since 2009 because we know how great this natural textile can be and how beautiful fits in shoes. We only work with cork produced in protected reserves and we love this material because it is waterproof, smooth elegant, soft and it is never out of fashion. Cork is incredibly durable and great for the environment. It is harvested from cork oak (or quercus suber) trees and is 100% sustainable. Cork farming actually has a negative carbon footprint, meaning that using it in our products has an incredibly positive impact on the planet. It’s waterproof, hypoallergenic and soft to the touch, making it virtually perfect.
