The origins of the use of cork are lost in time, leveraged by different civilizations who, thousands of years before Christ, discovered the potential of this raw material from the cork oak (Quercus Suber L.) and used it in endless everyday objects. The proof lies in the countless remnants found in some Mediterranean countries.
"For a material which has been used since antiquity, the chameleon-like versatility of cork is astonishing (...) thanks to its capacity for renewal and for adapting to new technological demands."
The potential of cork continues to be recognised and, in a world where innovation and ecology now go hand in hand, this material arouses the interest of an increasing number of sectors. Thus, one of the most ancient products in permanent use by Humanity, continues to give life to new products and applications.
