QueorkEverything cork. That’s about the easiest way to describe this quirky shop and its full-on embrace of an overlooked but easily renewable resource. So what can you make from cork that doesn’t involve a wine bottle? You’d be surprised: smartphone cases, shoes, kitchen aprons, hats, bow ties, and pretty much anything that might be feasibly crafted from leather. The material is not only a pleasure to touch (a curious combination of supple and stiff), but a delight to look at.
