Our cork fabric is handcrafted in Portugal using high-quality cork shavings. After slicing the planks into thin cork sheets, each piece is chosen for its exquisite beauty. These sheets are then assembled side by side and bonded to various supports/backings. In the case of double-sided cork fabric, cork is glued on both sides, with the backing placed between both cork layers. Thicker options incorporate two layers of backings.
Coloured cork fabric undergoes a meticulous hand-painting process, and a final protective layer is applied to enhance natural cork features. Further insights into the cork fabric manufacturing process can be found here
Our double-sided cork fabrics are not only sturdy but also unique and original materials, making them perfect alternatives to leather in craft projects. Available in various thicknesses, with the maximum being 2.2 mm, these fabrics closely resemble leather, requiring leather craft techniques.
USES: belts, shoulder straps, watch straps or watch bands, jewellery pendants, bracelets, bangles, dog collars, wallets, different leather craft projects.
