Activewear are proud to introduce a range of fully sustainable structured bags in natural cork from the award-winning brand Whistler Tree. Due to the nature of cork leather the bags are water repellent and stain resistant which makes them ideal for everyday use.
What is Cork Leather? Cork is the new Leather.
Think luxury accessories & you'd expect to be shopping for real leather, but the quality of non-leather textiles has improved beyond recognition.
All cork products are made from premium cork material that comes from the bark of the cork oak tree. Harvesting the bark from a cork oak tree every 9-10 years helps the tree to grow and live longer. Stripping the bark does not harm the tree, as the cork tree continues to mature and go through harvest; the tree is able to absorb more carbon dioxide to support its bark regeneration. As a result, the harvested trees will filter more carbon dioxide than those left untouched, resulting in cleaner air for everyone.
