About our cork handbags
Inspired by active women like you, we are delighted to present our new collection of cork handbags.
No one size fits all... whether you are looking for a small bag, a classic design, or a bag that will make you stand from the crowd, each one of them is made from premium cork fabric and using the latest eco-friendly hardware: Zamak (a non-ferrous alloy, extremely resistant and 100% recyclable).
Thoughtfully designed, every piece in this collection is expertly handcrafted by highly skilled artisans in Portugal. Extremely lightweight, waterproof and durable, our cork handbags will be your ideal companion at work or for your casual outings.
WHERE DO YOU SOURCE YOUR CORK FROM?
We've spent 2 years in sourcing and trying different types of cork from many countries within the Mediterranean peninsula. Today, we pride ourselves in sourcing the highest quality cork from Portugal. All our cork handbags are made from FSC® Certified cork, to comply with the requirements of sustainably managed forest and the protection of the cork oak trees.
ARE YOUR CORK HANDBAGS ECO-FRIENDLY?
"Vegan" does not always mean "eco-friendly"... At FRiLuk, we are committed to providing you stylish products that are cruelty-free but also free from any harmful chemicals. Unlike most vegan leather handbags, our cork does not contain polyurethane or any sort of plastic.
We know that you care about the environment, that's why we use vegetal ingredients during the dyeing process of our cork fabric: small details DO make a difference and that's how we can guarantee our products to be 100% eco-friendly.
WHAT DOES MAKE YOUR CORK BAGS BETTER THAN OTHER LEATHER ALTERNATIVES?
Cork is naturally waterproof, stain and scratch resistant as well as extremely lightweight, making it the ideal fabric for vegan handbags. That said, the biggest difference between cork and any other leather alternative is the sustainability and environmental impact behind the harvesting process.
A single cork tree can live up to 250 years and harvested every 9 years. Once the bark has been removed (i.e. harvested), it will regrow by pulling a ton of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, therefore, reducing our greenhouse gases. It's the perfect definition of sustainability!
