Short production routes, long service life: The cork oak has a variety of properties that provide this special raw material for cork bags. Around 100-200 kg of cork can be obtained over the life of the tree, as the bark can be harvested without the tree dying. This is probably the only tree in the world whose bark can be found for a period of 9-11 years Vegan Cork is a natural material obtained from the bark of the cork oak, which is mainly found in Mediterranean and Iberian areas. So no additional resources are needed to grow cork. Cork can be hand-picked every six to nine years and retains the unique structure of the bark. By harvesting the bark, the oak can absorb approx. 30% more carbon and at the same time release more oxygen.
