Description: “Of course I´ve seen cork, you know, since you were a kid, but coming to Portugal to see the cork farm was some kind of a mind-breaking thing for me.
Until then I really didn´t know that cork was just a bark that would be regrown.
I thought it was always a part of a tree that is cut. When I found that out, I really got fascinated, because you are not really killing the trees anymore. You are just borrowing nature, and then nature will regrow. I think that really got me to work with cork. You don´t really find other materials that are as friendly as cork”.
