Cork Bags from Europe
Our designer printed cork bags are made from sustainable natural cork with unique designs.
Cork is composed of dead cells that accumulate on the outer surface of the cork oak tree (Quercus Suber) that mostly grows on the southwest Europe and northwest Africa regions, being the majority in Portugal (34% of the world cork forests)
Cork has been used for quite some time, as it was found cork bottle stoppers in Egyptian tombs dating thousands of years. The Ancient Greeks also used it to make fishing net floats, sandals, and bottle stoppers. Two thousand years ago, Romans widely used cork in a variety of ways, including life jackets for fishermen.
Is the Cork tree harmed when it’s harvested?
Harvesting cork is an ancient method that can only be done by experts. This process not only doesn’t harm the tree, it’s actually good for them. Stripping a cork oak of its bark also enhances the ability to absorb carbon dioxide; the seven million acres of cork forest around the Mediterranean offset 20 million tons of CO2 each year.
