About us

We are taking a small step in the ethical and sustainable fashion industry by providing an eco-conscious alternative for leather. The material is not only just animal friendly but is also extremely functional.  Cork Element aims to promote sustainable fashion consumption by promoting quality natural fashion accessories.

Hello there!
We are three entrepreneurs coming from different walks of life with immense passion for the Portuguese cork. Having understood the challenges of the current textile industry, we want to give the world designs with beautiful tree leather coming straight from the forests of Portugal.

Our brand’s vision is to tastefully promote Portuguese cork craftsmanship. All our products are designed and manufactured within the country. We are building a sustainable fashion community giving access to individuals worldwide to buy good quality cork products.

Our brand's mission is to contribute to the protection of nature and animals. Buying sustainable products reduces the human ecological footprint, contributing to the reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere. Also, cork is a better and natural substitute for leather helping to reduce animal cruelty.

Cork Element was created by following three main basic elements:

  • Handcrafted- our products are manufactured by local artisans. All the artisans are treated fairly as there are strict fair trade rules in Portugal
  • Eco-friendly- Cork is a 100% natural coming from the bark of cork oak tree. The supply chain of the development of cork fabric is simple and traditional.
  • Vegan - Cork is durable, water resistant and has antimicrobial properties making it a really good vegan alternative for leather.

We are taking a small step in the ethical and sustainable fashion industry by providing an eco-conscious alternative for leather. The material is not only just animal friendly but is also extremely functional.
