Cork is nature's own high-tech yet sustainable achievement. Down to its very cell structure, the unique composition and characteristics of cork simply cannot be replicated by anything man-made. Extracted from the bark of the Cork Oak, a native specimen of the western Mediterranean Basin, cork is a state-of-the-art raw material, requiring minimum transformation or processing before use.
Reusable and completely bio-gradable, it is one of the most versatile and sustainable materials in the world - environmentally , socially and economically. Impermeable to liquids and gases; elastic, compressible, durable, highly resistant yet light and buoyant with low thermal conductivity making it a great insulator.
