Designers Turn to Wood for New Fabrics
With wine manufacturers increasingly turning to plastic corks, Portuguese cork factories are turning to fashion - and it's taking off. Cork fashion is much less stiff than you'd think, and designers are loving the novelty and eco-friendly appeal. The cork material, also known as 'cork leather' and 'cork fabric', is thin, pliable, and coated with Scotchguard. The cork fashion shown here include the $2,400 cork coat from DDCLab and $135 stilletto pumps from Stuart Weitzman.
