The high-quality natural cork used to make this cork backpack was hand-harvested from trees that are only harvested every nine years, and then was stacked to dry and transported to the manufacturing factory. The cork was then steamed in water and flattened, and the cork that was not used for wine bottles was compressed into a thick cork fabric roll.
Then, a thin layer of cork, about the width of a piece of paper, was shaved off of the cork fabric roll in order to make the cork exterior of the bag. The cork was sewn together with cotton fabric to create the interior lining. Then, the rest of the bag was molded and stitched together.
This cork backpack from Corkor is spacious, sustainable, and made of the highest quality Portuguese cork craftsmanship. Elegant yet practical and ideal for holding all of your daily necessities, it has one large inside compartment with a key holder, an interior slip pocket and a zipper pocket. It pulls tightly shut with a drawstring closure at the top. The outside is made entirely of cork with metal accents, and the interior lining is made of cotton.
