Cork fabric, also known as cork leather, is made out of the harvested bark of the cork oak (Quercus) tree. The bark is left to dry for months, stacked into huge blocks, boiled and then sliced into thin sheets of cork. The more dense and best sheets are turned with cork fabric by adding a backing layer of cotton. If you would like to know more, please visit our Learn More About Cork page.
Cork fabric is not only stain-resistant, but also extremely easy to clean. Just use warm water and soap and wipe gently with a soft cloth in circular motions. Never use cleaning products and do not machine wash it.
Cork fabric is naturally waterproof and its chemical composition makes it impermeable to liquids. This is the reason why it is used for wine stoppers and fishing floats.
Cork fabric is naturally antibacterial and hypo-allergenic, and it does not collect pet hair, dust, mildew or mould. It has a natural substance called suberin which repels insects, bugs and decay.
