Cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree. It is naturally light weight, water repellent, stain resistant and fire resistant, and ages with style and character like leather but without the cruelty.
How to store: All our products come with a cotton dust bag. When not in use, store your cork item in the dust bag and out of direct sunlight in a position that doesn't crumple the item to help retain its shape.
How to clean: To keep your cork item in good condition, simply clean it with water and soap using a cloth or soft brush. It is important to wipe/rub gently when cleaning your cork item and do not use any chemical agents or abrasive materials as it could cause the cork to separate from its backing fabric. Once the cleaning is done, wipe the item with a clean and dry soft cloth and allow it to dry.
Piñatex is a natural, non-woven textile made from pineapple leaf fibre. It is a soft, versatile, lightweight and durable material, making it suitable for use across fashion, soft interiors, automotive and other applications.
How to clean: To keep your Piñatex product in top condition, we recommend polishing it lightly and regularly using a natural wax (such as Barbour wax). It is best to leave in a warm (not hot) place for 24 hours then gently buff with a soft cloth. The use of Liquiproof Protector™ is also recommended. It is a natural non-toxic coating that will make the product more stain and water repellent.
