Environmental Benefits of Cork Mato
Wicanders is a truly green and sustainable brand. Produced by Amorim, the protection of the environment is of the utmost importance. Starting with the harvesting of our Cork products, it is removed from the trunk of the Cork tree by hand without ever damaging the tree. Every year a new layer of bark grows making it a renewable and sustainable resource. Cork is ideal in terms of the ever increasing demand for conservation of resources.
It has unique and incomparable qualities which no product has yet managed to copy or improve on. Cork is made of 400 million cells per cm³ resembling a honeycomb like structure. This protects the tree from sharp weather temperature changes and as such makes it an ideal wall or floor covering for its insulation and acoustical benefits.
