All Cork used at Melanie Abrantes Designs is a 100% natural, renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. Our cork is obtained through a sustainable process in which trees are never cut down in order to harvest material. Instead, bark is re-harvested by hand every 9 years. Cork oak trees can live up to 300 years making them a fantastic renewable resource for design. The inherent versatility in the material allows for a multitude of uses. Melanie Abrantes Designs offers a collection of homewares created in house from sustainable hand-harvested Portuguese cork.
