They may not be your choice vessels for holding your cereal or soup, but Corchetes cork containers have a range of uses and a broader appeal. Aesthetically and tangibly they engage the senses in a way that glass and ceramics do not, with an earthy porous appearance, a spongey texture and a softness that makes setting the table a gentler practice.
The contenedors alcornoques make great servers for bread rolls, nuts and treats, holders for whole fruit and miscellaneous knickknacks, and they function very well as planters. They can decorate shelves, windowsills, buffets and tables with a delightfully casual tone, yet a crisp contemporary chicness. Most attractive about the Corchetes cork containers is, however, their sustainably derived biodegradable material and their eco composition from wine cork scraps.
