Cork is an incredibly sustainable product, as it is the outer bark of the tree which is stripped off & then it regenerates to be used again, and again..and again.

HISTORY

Once you’ve lived on Cork flooring, it’s hard to settle for anything else. But, it is often viewed as an old-fashioned, orange coloured, but warm flooring. NO LONGER! Recent technological advances have made it a modern, innovative & attractive alternate floor covering to tiles. It has fantastic insulating qualities & is naturally warm to touch, therefore potentially saving on your energy costs. If you want Eco-Friendly – go for CORK. It is an extremely renewable resource from sustainable plantations, of which the bark of the tree regenerates over & over again. Low VOC Emissions & non toxic products used in its manufacture make it ideal for use in the home or commercial setting.
