13/12/2020



Valérie Itey one of the founders is originally from Bordeaux, the city par excellence of wine, the land of her grandparents, hence the need to meet this challenge was born. 

Natural Cork is one of the few forms of natural material  that is responsible and ecofriendly with the environment. Unlike plastic corks, cork is renewable, fully recyclable, biodegradable and 100% natural. with a negative carbon impact. 

To meet an important demand, the cork producers, the cork oak forests are shortening the time between two harvests and this over-exploitation has disastrous effects (appearance of parasitic fungi in particular). Hence the importance of recycling that contributes to the sustainable management of this material. 

What's the point of recycling? The recycling of corks allows the manufacture of cork granules for insulation and boards for parquet floors. Cork is a very good thermal and acoustic insulator, resistant to vibrations and water. It can also be very useful for more commonly used products such as cork boards, chairs, designer items, even shoe soles, yoga support block or to stay in a Surf.
