We love the cork fabric which is produced from thin sheets of cork sustainably harvested from the outer bark of the cork tree. It is flexible and feels like leather. We like it so much that we decided to add cork to our line. The Cork Maxi is the same size as the popular Maxi, 7” x 5”, and has the same features. It has one side made of cork fabric with black polyester trim and the other made of black polyester with cork accents.
Our Cork Maxis have proven so popular, we decided to go all out with our Corkie Wallet. Soft to the touch but durable, the Corkie is made entirely of eco-friendly cork fabric which is manufactured from thin sheets of cork sustainably harvested from the bark of cork trees. Cork fabric is in naturally water and dust resistant but as a precaution, a non-toxic sealant is applied during the manufacturing process. Cork fabric can be wiped clean with a damp cloth and mild detergent.
Metallic accents add a touch of glamour to this go-anywhere wallet. The Corkie measures 4 ¼” x 8 ¼” when snapped closed and features 6 credit card slots and two slip pockets that can hold passports and most cell phones.
