CORK | WINDOW TREATMENTS | INDOOR | OUTDOOR USE
Like all trees, the cork oak produces oxygen, but its unique cell structure prevents the emission of carbon dioxide, largely responsible for global warming. Cork industry operations provide for the sustainability of cork oak forests and help protect the wildlife and flora that inhabit them. The stripping of the bark without harming the tree is a unique process deriving from the singular anatomy and properties of the outer bark layer, or periderm.
Cork has been worked in the form of traditional lace. Perforations, filtering light and creating interesting wall patterns using laser technology.
