Cork Leather in the Media

Cork Leather boutique opens in Hawthorne

Whether it’s keeping your favourite bottle of red wine fresh or lining your floors, cork is one clever little character. A new boutique in Hawthorne is paying homage to this renewable resource with shelves full of cork bags, shoes and jewellery.
Cork umbrellas and tote bags may seem like novelty items in July 2013, but there’s a good chance you’ll be reading this from behind your cork iPad folder, on your cork mousepad that was taken out of your cork tote bag in the very near future. As we become more aware of our impact on the environment and embrace eco-friendly lifestyles, cork may well see a surge in popularity as a biodegradable, renewable resource. The process of cork production doesn’t harm the cork tree, but rather benefits it and prolongs its lifespan. In addition, cork trees that are stripped of their bark actually absorb more CO2 than those that are left idle.
The environmentally friendly material featured in Cork Leather’s products is sourced from Portugal, which is one of the world’s major cork producers. The handmade collection available in-store ranges from loafers and ballet flats to pens, wallets and aprons. Wares are available online or at the Hawthorne boutique.
