Vegan Wallet. Brown Billfold Cork Wallet. Super Lightweight. Sustainable Harvested Cork Tree Bark. Made in the U.S.A.
What is cork? Cork is the outer bark of the cork tree, which is harvested by hand without harming or killing the tree, kind of like getting wool from a sheep. Once harvested, the bark regenerates, making it a renewable and sustainable resource.
Better than leather. Cork is environmentally preferable to leather as it comes from a lower carbon impact source (tree bark) and does not use animal products in its manufacture (a vegan product). The environmental concerns associated with leather include the energy and carbon intensity of generating animal products and the chemicals used in the leather tanning process that can be damaging to human health and the environment. Cork is a naturally beautiful and greener alternative to leather.
Supple and Lightweight. To make CLIFF belts, layers of cork are laminated to fabric, creating a durable, lightweight and supple material. Each belt is handmade and individually crafted. How does it wear? Our cork wears beautifully over time, distressing much like leather but without the weight – it can even be machine washed at 30˚C. Due to the unique nature of the material, our belts ﬁt very comfortably and cast a thinner silhouette than most leather belts. Take a look at the belts on this page – they are the ﬁrst cork belts we made, with 2+ years of tough wear
