Cork Fabric Process
The life cycle of cork, as a raw material, begins with the extraction of bark from cork oaks, which is called stripping. After being extracted, cork enters the industrial process until it obtains the infinity of products that we can find: cork stoppers, cork fabric, construction materials and design, among many others.
Bark extraction from cork oaks. It is an ancestral process that can only be done by specialists, the strippers, so as not to damage the tree. It is performed in six stages and by two men for the same tree.
It takes 25 years before a cork oak trunk starts producing cork and then on average every 9 years and the bark is extracted from the oak trees.
