Why cork fabric?
Part of the decision to found this brand was the intensive research and interviews done with cork product consumers. Research not only concluded that cork fabric is a fantastic alternative to leather due to its durability and characteristics, but also, that there is still a lot to be done to make cork fabric to be known to the world. Cortissa®'s role is to sell quality products and expand the use of this eco-friendly and sustainable material to influence the industry.
