Assembling the material CORKonLINEN, that is made from cork and linen, is the most important step.
The manufacturing process of the material is protected by a worldwide patent and we will not disclose every technical detail here. But, in short:
The sliced cork is applied to the linen textile together with a natural, water-based glue. The cork is placed by hand, slightly overlapping.
Once placed it is pressed together.
The cork is sanded by hand in several steps.
This manual sanding process assures us to have a smooth and soft material and an even structure.
