Eco materials are on the rise in women’s fashion.
Corkor is based in Palmela, Portugal. They make premium bags using eco materials such as cork. Their accessories are high-quality and designed for function. The company has a personal relationship with all their suppliers and everything is made in Portugal. The Corkor team is committed to their workers health and welfare. They spend a lot of time in the factories where their goods are manufactured. They also strive to get to know their workers personally.
Corkor Laptop Bags are made of (you guessed it) cork, a highly versatile green material. Every piece is unique due to the natural diversity of the patterns in cork. This laptop bag made of eco materials, features a large zippered back pocket. The inside is lined with dark brown fabric, has a large interior pocket and a cell phone holder. It also features a zippered pocket. The bottom is made of dark brown leather with feet to protect the base of the bag (the jury is still out on weather they use a vegetable dyed or recycled leather, but they could *hint *hint).
This bag is a great example of sustainable design. If you are looking for a materials database and material sources for your sustainable design project, check out the YAEMO materials library. We feature materials such as cork, flooring, plastics, metals, composites, substrates, and much more!
