Cork Fabric

Source

London-based designer Yemi Awosile developed a fabric from an innovative combination of repurposed cork and elastane. Cork Fabric can be used for interior design applications such as upholstery, wall coverings, and wall panels. It benefits from the high elasticity of elastane fiber as well as the acoustic and thermal insulating properties found in cork. The cork is made with by-products from wine stopper production and is treated with a metallic finish. The fabric is available in a variety of colors and fiber combinations.
