Natural Cork Fabric
Cork is the bark of the cork-oak tree which grows mainly in Mediterranean regions, such as Portugal. The bark is extracted and the tree renews itself, making cork a natural, recyclable and environmentally friendly product.
This natural cork fabric, or cork leather as it's often called, is perfect for making bags & wallets. It's backed with a thin layer of fabric similar to a faux leather. It's thin enough to easily sew on any domestic machine. It's pliable, bendable and easy to cut too! Just like with leathers and vinyls I recommend clipping instead of pinning. I also like to interface my cork leather for most (not all) projects using Decor Bond, my preferred choice in interfacing. You can cut it, iron it and sew it like any other fabric.
All cork sold through Sew Many Creations is direct from Portugal.
Cork is available in 11 different colors and 5 different sizes:
9" x 12"
9" x 27"
18" x 27"
9" x 54"
18" x 54"
What can you do with each size?
The 9" x 12" is perfect for an accent piece or making the outside of a Diva or Prima Diva.
The 9" x 27" is great for the base of a purse or tote.
18" x 27" is the perfect size for the bottom of a Tourist Tote Bag.
9" x 54" is great for making handles or the base of a larger bag.
An 18" x 54" piece is enough for the base of a Road Trip Bag AND a Tourist Tote Bag.
Pieces are cut individually and custom sizes are not available at this time.
Colors vary from computer to computer so to help assist you in deciding, each cork color is shown by itself as well as next to a popular quilting fabric (for reference only).
