Did you know that it's possible to make a bag with the bark of a tree? The vegan leather alternative, cork fabric, is made by gluing cork sheets to a backing support.
So often we're offered mass production products with synthetic backings but Folclore Crafts took this fabric to the next level, changing polyester and PU for certified cotton fabrics. Now Folclore can say it has a 100 per cent plant-based and sustainable material.
This cork and cotton fabric was born from the joint work of Folclore Crafts and a Portuguese cork factory.
Using a handcrafted process, they're able to offer customised products. It's possible to choose from an amazing range of colours and natural patterns and to pick the best pure cotton backing from different weights. A lightweight cork fabric will be perfect for garments, a medium and a heavyweight material can be used in bags and other fashion accessories or in home interior projects, including upholstery. Even reversible options are possible.
Handcrafted, sustainable and with Portuguese soul, cork and cotton fabric from Folclore Crafts offers more than a leather alternative
