It’s waterproof, soft to the touch, abrasion resistant, tough and durable, antibacterial and hygienic.

This fabric is free of substances that could harm the environment or health and is easy to clean. Now, do you know that cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree and is harvested every nine years from the cork oak, without cutting down its trunk? The cork oak is the only tree whose bark is self-regenerating, and can be harvested about 17 times over 200 years. Extracting cork is a key contribution to the ecological sustainability of the Mediterranean region and does not cause any damage to the environment.

The Burel fabric

Burel Factory is a Portuguese brand, born in Serra da Estrela, dedicated to the preservation and heritage of the industrial heritage that characterizes that same place, its people and its history. The brand ensures the legacy of wool and burel, promoting the mastery of weaving, carding, spinning and weaving on ancestral machines.

appearance. It does not create pills and it is resistant to traction, breakage, pressure and exposure to light, en-during intensive use without changing color and shape.
