100% Vegan Shoes Made From Natural Cork

Cork is a 100% natural raw material which gets harvested every 9 years. No tree is cut during the harvest of cork. This makes it one of the most environmentally friendly raw material.

Top 4 Benefits of Cork

  • 100% Sustainable & Eco Friendly Raw Material
  • Lightweight: Over 50% of its volume is air, which makes it very light.
  • Anti-Bacterial: It does not absorb dust and prevents the appearance of mites and, therefore, contributes to protection against allergies.  
  • Wear Resistant: Cork is resistant to wear, thanks to its honeycomb structure, which makes it less affected by impact or friction than other hard surfaces.
