Studio Corkinho - It’s Cork but not as you know it.
Cork is a 100% natural product harvested from the cork oak. This tree grows in southwest Europe and northwest Africa. Studio Corkinho uses cork from the Alentejo Hills in Portugal. For centuries these hills have been creating sustainable materials, used for their exceptional qualities. Impermeable, buoyant, elastic, fire retardant but most of all warm, light, sound absorbing, … Qualities that transfer a specific mood when used in your home.
Design Vases in Cork – How is it harvested?
Slowly and patiently to preserve the life of the tree… Cork harvesting is generally considered very environmentally friendly. Only when a cork oak grows to the age of 34, it’s gently stripped of its bark to harvest the cork. After that they wait for 9 years to repeat this process, cork oaks can live up to 350 years. The way it’s produced together with the easy recycling makes this material for the design vases and bowls of Studio Corkinho very natural.
