Raw material

Cork is a prime raw material obtained from the cork oak tree.,  The cork oak whose scientific name is Quercus Suber L has its bark extracted every nine years over a lifespan between 150 to 200 years in a manner that respects the natural development cycle of the tree
.
The cork thus obtained is a natural product boasting unique features: it is recyclable, biodegradable, waterproof and hermetic to liquids and gases. It is remarkably light, and also compressible and elastic.

The cork cultivation process is one of those that most respects sustainability, nature and environmental preservation.
