Cork is a natural and sustainable material harvested from cork oak trees every nine years without harming or killing the trees. The bark of the trees naturally regenerates, making cork a renewable resource. Cork is also recyclable and biodegradable. Natalie Therése sources cork fabric from Portugal, the world's number one cork producer. The manufacturer avoids the use of chemicals in the production process. Cork fabric makes an ideal material for handbags because it is lightweight, soft, easy to clean, stain-resistant, and waterproof.
