What makes our cork bags different?
Our cork bags are made out of left over cork pieces rather than new sheets of cork from cork farming. We work with recyclable materials to help reduce product wastage, decrease carbon footprint, and are cruelty free.
After discovering cork fabric through Nike and Vans collections, Jane, a fashion graduate from Whitehouse Institute of Design, was inspired to start her own line of up-cycled cork bags. Cork fabric that she uses is made from off cut cork pieces. Jane works with a manufacturer in Sydney to design and produce the final products. Her cork range happened to be popular among the vegan community quite quickly and this has influenced a lifestyle change for her.
She became more environmental conscious and it also lead her create a vegan soap range with a soap maker from South Coast, NSW, to produce traditional handcrafted vegan soaps. ‘By The Sea Collection’ vegan soaps are made out of all natural fair trade ingredients, mostly sourced from within Australia.
“Sydney is my home. It feels great to share all the things I love with our vibrant community” – Jane.
