Cork isn’t just for bottle stoppers anymore and these inventive cork designs are proving this notion. Cork is a durable, flexible and sustainable material that is made up of bark tissue, harvested for commercial use.

The material is composed of suberin that contributes to its elasticity and fire-resistant features. Thanks to its versatile properties, the material has become a go-to for architects as well as industrial and fashion designers who are replacing traditional building supplies with an eco-friendly alternative.

Cork based shoes, accessories and even umbrellas are not the only amazing products out there as bottle stopper stools, chairs and lamps are also gaining massive popularity. These inventive cork designs vary from interior home applications to fun DIY projects that are created with sustainability in mind.
