Cork is the bark of the cork-oak tree which grows mainly in Mediterranean regions, such as Portugal. The bark is extracted and the tree renews itself, making cork a natural recyclable and environmentally friendly product. This natural cork fabric, or cork leather as it’s often called, is perfect for making bags & wallets. It’s backed with a thin layer of fabric similar to a faux leather. It’s thin enough to easily sew on any domestic machine. It’s pliable, easy to cut! Just like with leather and vinyls, I recommend clipping with wonder clips, instead of pinning. Easy to cut with a rotary cutter, It’s very durable, wears extremely well and doesn’t fray.
