Cork is one of the newest "fabrics" on the market.
The bark is extracted and the tree renews itself, making cork a recyclable and environmentally friendly product. This natural cork fabric is great accents on bags & wallets. It's backed with a thin layer of fabric similar to a faux leather. Cork is pliable, easy to cut, and your home sewing machine will handle it just fine. Washing in the machine is not generally recommended, but cork can be cleaned with a damp cloth.
