Cork is the bark of the cork-oak tree which grows mainly in Mediterranean regions, such as Portugal. The bark is extracted and the tree renews itself, making cork a natural, recyclable and environmentally friendly product.
This natural cork fabric, or cork leather as it's often called, is perfect for making bags & wallets. It's backed with a thin layer of fabric similar to a faux leather. It's thin enough to easily sew on any domestic machine. It's pliable, bendable and easy to cut too! Just like with leathers and vinyls we recommend clipping instead of pinning. If you choose to interface cork leather for most (not all) projects we suggest Decor Bond. You can cut it, iron it and sew it like any other fabric.
