Why We Love Cork

Like felt, cork is a renewable resource and is constantly being rediscovered in the home, workplace and other venues. It is a warm and light material that is made out of bark from cork trees; making it unique because cork bark can be harvested while allowing new bark to grow in its place without killing or damaging the trees. This makes every tree a renewable source of raw material, and cork a favourite for environmentally conscious consumers. Have a look at some of our latest cork products and see for yourself.




Furnish your kitchen with our latest cork trivets. Our classic round cut comes in two sizes and fits nicely into any setting.

Cork is a moisture resistant material, which prevents the build up of mould or mildew on the cork itself. This makes it the perfect protective mat in saunas or bathrooms, providing a non-slip surface to step onto. The natural cork colour fits into almost any decor. Our cork is easily wiped down with a damp cloth.




Cork insoles are made from 100% natural cork. Slip these insoles into your shoes for added cushioning and shock absorption.
