Portuguese Cork Bookmark. Vegan leather. We have sourced the Cork for this line of products from the Alentejo region in Portugal, home to the worlds largest cork forests. These Cork forests have been used in Cork production as far back as Roman times and have recently received recognition as a World Heritage Site. The forests are a managed and controlled site for the production of cork whilst also providing a diverse environment for animals and plants unique to the region. Unlike commercial forestry Cork trees are not felled, but the bark is harvested every 11 years.

Cork Oaks are the only trees that can have their bark removed and not die. Instead, the tree replenishes its bark over a decade ready to be harvested once more. Cork is the world's most sustainably sourced wood product.

Cork is naturally waterproof and anti-microbial as well, making it ideal for use as a product that is handled daily and placed in any number of locations.
Just like leather it is hard wearing, very strong and it's texture improves with age.

There are 4 etched quotations to choose from:

QUOTE 1: "There's so much more to a book than just the reading" - Maurice Sendak (positioned along the bottom right)

QUOTE 2: "But it's the truth even if it didn't happen" - Ken Kesey (positioned along the bottom right)

QUOTE 3: Just one more chapter (positioned going up the left hand side)

QUOTE 4: Once upon a time...... (positioned going up the left hand side)
