Using cork to produce our products help  the sustainability of the cork tree.

As more and more wine manufacturers continue to adopt the use of plastic stoppers instead of the traditional cork cap, the cork farmers are faced with the challenge to find more uses for their harvest in order to make ends meet. Harvesting the cork every 9 years does not destroy or harm the tree since it comes from the bark and not the trunk. There is a misconception that cork trees are dying which is totally false. The farmers that are unable to find a market for their cork are cutting cork trees making them endangered. We at Cork by Design are proud to support the cork industry with our beautiful products.
