Cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree, which grows mainly in the Mediterranean region.

This tree has a life span of about 200 years. Each cork tree must be 20 to 25 years old before it can provide its first harvest of cork.

After extracting the cork a new layer starts generating and nine years have to pass until a new harvest can take place. The cork harvesting is made in a sustainable manner and does not harm the tree which is never cut down or removed.

With the increasing concern towards the environment, cork oak remains the only tree whose bark can regenerate itself after harvest leaving the tree unharmed. Furthermore, the cork oak tree has the remarkable capacity to retain carbon and a harvested cork tree fixates almost five times more carbon.

These exceptional characteristics make cork a naturally sustainable product and its use contributes to the preservation of a unique habitat in the world.

It is an evergreen which grows in commercial stands only in areas bordering the Mediterranean Sea. Of the important cork producing countries, Portugal supplies approximately 50%, Spain 25%, with the balance being divided between Algeria, France, Morocco, Italy and Tunisia.


As early as 2,500 BC cork was being used for fishing floats in ancient Egypt.
