RUSTICORK uses strips of natural cork, which are discarded for the manufacture of stoppers, or pieces of virgin cork in its raw state, to create an absolutely unique and impossible to imitate appearance and texture. For this reason, RUSTICORK is unique and it is specified not only for its aesthetics, but also for its function and its natural state, truly organic.
Each cork oak forest is carefully managed, with cork oaks that live for more than 200 years, in which cork is harvested responsibly, without impacting the tree, and a new layer grows back that is ready for harvest in approximately nine years. In addition, the cork oak has a remarkable capacity to retain carbon and a stripped cork oak retains almost five times more carbon. These exceptional characteristics make cork a naturally sustainable product and its use contributes to the preservation of the environment and a unique habitat in the world.
