Cork is the outer bark of the Cork Oak Tree which grows in the Mediterranean area. Cork trees are the only tree in the world that regenerates stripped bark.
Cork production is generally considered sustainable because the cork tree is not cut down to obtain cork; only the bark is stripped to harvest the cork. The tree continues to live and grow. The sustainability of production and the easy recycling of cork products and by-products are two of its most distinctive aspects.
Since Turquoise 'the store' has always laid emphasis on Handcrafted products, here we have a collection of our Handcrafted and Hand carved Cork Products.
We were looking to buy a replacement leather wallet for my husband with a minimalistic design and we found one Cork wallet! But we were under the assumption that cork wallet would last for a short time, so it would be a pointless waste. This is when we began to experiment with Cork and it took years for us to finally come up with such beautifully handcrafted Cork products that are made by our own artisans.
A real Cork product smells like a Cork. If the price is too low it's not real. We have beautiful range of Cork products starting from Cork Yoga Matts, Yoga blocks, Fashion accessories, Lamp shades and much more to choose from.
