Cork is a 100% sustainable product. To harvest the cork no tree needs to fall! The harvesting is done by specialized professionals and the tree is not damaged during the process. In the following 9 years after each harvesting, the cork oak will regenerate its bark and the cork will acquire a smoother texture. Considering the life of an oak tree is on average 200 years, each tree can be harvested around 17 times.
Cork's ability to retain CO2 hence reducing greenhouse gas emissions makes this natural wonder one of the most eco-friendly and sustainable natural resources.
Cork is the bark of the cork oak tree. It's a unique and very special raw material. One that men, with all its studies and technology, couldn't yet replicate in all its greatness and excellence.
Corozo is a 100% natural product which is similar in consistency to a hard resin. Also known as tagua, it is often referred to as "vegetable ivory." At a microscopic level, corozo is made up of very tightly wound organic fibers which give it excellent durability and scratch resistance. Its porous nature allows colors to penetrate deep into the surface which makes it an excellent material for dyeing. Corozo is also well known for its elegant natural grain; a unique pattern that, much like a fingerprint, ensures no two buttons are exactly alike.
Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Third-party certification organizations verify that organic producers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.
Organic linen is made from flax, a natural raw material. Flax is a recyclable fibre that does not need irrigation and almost no chemical treatment. All parts of the plant are used, ensuring no waste.
Clothing recycling is part of textile recycling. It involves recovering old clothing and shoes for sorting and processing. End products include clothing suitable for reuse, cloth scraps or rags as well as fibrous material. Interest in garment recycling is rapidly on the rise due to environmental awareness and landfill pressure.
Upcycling is about recovering materials in order to transform them. It can be the scraps of old collections, destined to be thrown away, of textiles whose primary use is diverted (curtains, furnishing textiles, etc.). Creative reuse is a kind of recycling where we make good with old. This practice helps reduce our waste in an anti-waste approach.
