The Portuguese Cork

Cork is a natural product that is used on the board surface  and out of which our rolls are made exclusively. Cork provides a very comfortable feeling when used barefoot (recommended), thus helping to relocate your center of gravity naturally. Cork is naturally hypoallergenic, provides great grip and does not create unwanted odors. The solid cork roll slides smoothly, providing a good grip between the board and the floor. 

By buying our Cork products you directly support the continuity of cork oak forest. The cork oak (Quercus suber) is a worldwide unique tree, as its bark is harvested still by hand without harming the alive tree. New bark, the cork, continuous to grow and can be harvested after another 9 years. The sustainable and integrated agroforestry "Montado", of cork oak forests protects and maintains a unique ecosystem that is home to million of plants and animals, from which some as the Iberian lynx and Eastern imperial eagle are strongly endangered.
