Cork is a vegetable coating which grows on the cortex of wooden plants, as a skin. The cork oak is an ancient tree, an almost mystical entity to the Egyptians and the Babylonians, the first populations who adopted it to decorate and isolate. It grows slowly, year after year, preserving the cortex of the Mediterranean trees.
Its physical features are unique: it has matchless resistance and isolation properties, it’s light, elastic and porous.
Around 40 million cells form a single cubic centimeter, making the cork a shield for the tree and a ductile, renewable and recyclable material for humans.
