Why natural cork
Sustainable products with cork, a 100% natural product.
Cork is extracted from cork, which is the only tree in the world that produces this material and that lives, exclusively, in Mediterranean ecosystems. Present in only 9 countries of the world. In these Mediterranean ecosystems, along with cork screws and holm ies, more than 400 species coexist between flora and fauna. These forests and pastures have become some of the last refuges of many of the species of animals and vegetables that today are endangered, such as the Iberian Lynx, Iberian Imperial Eagle, Black Vulture, wild orchids, and a long etc.
The cork is taken out of the cork, in Extremadura, weather permitting, is done every 9 years. For cork extraction you do not need to cut the tree, the "sacaores" with expert hands, uncork them without causing any damage to the cork, and the tree will continue to produce cork, without altering its physical state. It is one of the few activities that still survive and that is 100% sustainable, thanks to which, we help to conserve these natural spaces with all its flora, fauna and ancient culture associated with it.
