Cork Is the New Black October 03, 2016 16:13
You may already know that there is nothing animal friendly or eco-friendly about leather made from animal skins. Buying leather bags, belts, jackets, or wallets means subjecting cows, dogs, and other animals to the horrors of farms and slaughterhouses. And just like fur, leather is loaded with toxic chemicals to keep it from decomposing in the buyer’s closet.
Enter cork, a sustainable, stylish, and animal-friendly solution. Cork fabric is made from the outer bark of cork oak trees, which naturally grows back, so cork products are as kind to the planet as they are chic.
More and more fashion brands are using this soft, durable, and water-resistant material to create purses, phone and computer cases, travel bags, jewelry, and more.
