Cork is a remarkable material which originates from Montado, a delicate and protected cork oak forest ecosystem found in Portugal. Cork is the bark of the cork oaks and is removed from them every 9 years.
Montado represents 21% of Portugal forest area and an incredible 50% of the world cork production. Cutting cork oaks is completely forbidden in Portugal. Cork is both at the heart of our business and of our bags, wallets and purses, footwear and other products in our collection.
