Cork is natural, recyclable and biodegradeable. No natural or man-made material replicates its properties. It is remarkably resistant to wear, as it is less affected by impact and friction than other hard surfaces, due to its cellular composition. In a world of environmental awareness, Corkart uses cork, an environmental friendly, renewable and sustainable material to create warm, comfortable and luxurious interior decorating styles that will fit any home. Established in 1997, all operations are headquartered in Vendas Novas, Portugal, a town located in the heart of the Portuguese cork oak forests, approx 1 hour south of Lisbon. Corkart employs state of the art manufacturing equipment and excellent raw materials in order to achieve superb results and high quality products.
