Portuguese Cork

Portugal produces at least half of the world’s cork, harvested from its many cork oak forests. A design shop in the Bairro Alto neighborhood sells umbrellas, handbags, and kitchenware made from the recyclable material.

Finding New Uses for Cork

Everybody probably knows that in Portugal, the wine bottles have a cork. But cork is used in other objects such as fashion accessories and furniture, which you can find in this shop.

Portugal is the biggest cork producer, with around half of the world's cork, so it makes sense that more of this recyclable and sustainable material is being used. It’s extracted from the bark of the cork oak every 9 years, without any harm or damage to the tree.
