I'm not sure where my fascination with cork came from for this post. It started with this image below. A range of purses of graduating sizes stacked on top of each other more like a pile of placemats than purses.
Cork is such a delicate and amazing material. Functional and curious. I must say that whilst i have never really invested in a cork bag or cork accessories, i can see that there is a whole world waiting out there to be discovered. Its softer and more pliable than wood and textured in a uniquely natural way.
I like the chest below which i found on etsy, the contrasting materials make it look very stylish and robust which is not a usual characteristic of cork.
