Cork Art | The New Fashion Trend
Cork is a natural element that allows artists to create with clear conscience, as a eco-friendly material. Cork is almost like the wool of the sheep, trees can be "shorn" every nine years, and they slowly gain new "clothing."
It is from Portuguese lands that the largest cork production in the world is from. Although the cork of wine bottles is the most famous outcome originated from this production, in Portugal there are many other articles in cork: fashion accessories, clothes or shoes.
The recent invention of cork fabric has revolutionized this industry and put in evidence its much appreciated properties: it is resistant, versatile, recyclable, hypoallergenic and has thermal and acoustic qualities. In addition, it has a very simple transformation process to be worked on.
