What is Cork Wall?
Cork wall tiles are a natural material which is well known for its elasticity and impermeability. Cork bark straight from the Cork tree is manufactured into wall tiles to provide a vivid and natural wall feature. A 100% environmentally friendly choice. Cork is harvested from the tree every nine years resulting in a sustainable resource that can be used again and again. Our tiles are produced by cooking the cork slowly, releasing natural resins that bind the material with itself.

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.
Insulation: 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.
