Cork is a rare and special gift from Nature !
Cork is the bark of the cork oak (Quercus Suber), a noble tree that grows in the Mediterranean regions, particularly in Portugal, which allows cork to be removed every decade. It is extracted from cork oaks without harming the normal development of the species and without damaging the tree. The first extraction of cork occurs, usually, when the tree reaches between 25 and 30 years, and the extraction occurs in the months of June to August. From the first withdrawal, the cork is extracted every nine years.
Cork has numerous special and unique qualities, very light, waterproof, biodegradable, remarkably resistant to friction and an excellent thermal insulation. Antistatic and hypoallergenic. It is a raw material,100% natural and environmentally friendly. Over time, it has been used for diverse applications. For the first time it is being used to coat our loved pets!
