As you know leather is made from animal skin. It is taken, in most cases, by killing them. Although we know this fact, we tend to forget where this came from. Although there are other synthetic materials for wallets, they have their drawbacks. Here is a naturally made wallet that is sturdy enough and coming with many benefits. It is the cork material taken from cork oak, the very same material of wine cork. Corature cork wallets are some signature collection in wallets that are eco friendly and durable.
Corature cork items
Corature makes the wallets, purses, and handbags using the Oak cork. The cork is taken by stripping the trees. The trees have a longer lifespan of over 300 years. By taking the cork, no tree is harmed, no one is killed, and no harm is done to the nature as well. It is a safe and eco-friendly option of using natural products and having a durable material for something that stores the important personal belongings.
Why choose cork over leather?
The cork oak trees grow in the cork forests that are home to many of the endangered animal species and offers home to vast varieties of lives. The greatest advantage of them is that these trees can purify the air by taking in a large amount of carbon dioxide.
This ability of the cork oak trees to absorb carbon dioxide is increased when they are stripped. In such conditions these trees absorb almost 5 times more carbon dioxide from the environment than when in unstrapped condition. It is also to be noted that the trees stay intact even after the cork is taken, the trees need not be cut to take it.
