Stylish, sustainable and practical, cork accessories are great for your home and wellbeing

When your home feels good, you feel good. So, whether you’re looking to do some interiors updates this year to enhance your space, or simply want to upgrade your accessories, we’ve got an idea for you: cork. Yes, the humble natural material is a real winner when it comes to homeware, flooring and even exercise equipment. That’s right, it has many more uses than just for wine bottles and noticeboards!  

Not only is the material natural, tactile and warm, its neutral hue looks gorgeous in any home. What’s more, it’s eco-friendly. Ideal if you’re looking to make more sustainable choices when it comes to your shopping habits. 

Where to buy  

Portuguese Treasures, a top destination for eco-conscious interiors products are experts in using cork in the home. They take pride in offering a wide range of products that are not only stylish and resilient, but also environmentally friendly.
