Founded in 2015 by a U.S Navy Veteran we aim to change consumer behaviour and steer people towards cork as a viable material in fashion.
We first got drawn to cork when I wanted to replace my leather watch strap with something else. After browsing numerous watch forums I came across someone wearing a strap made out of cork. I absolutely had to have it!
A few weeks later it arrived and when I put the strap around my wrist I realized that I needed more cork in my life. I needed a cork wallet!
The more I researched cork the more I fell in love. Most material harms the environment, using cork is actually a net positive. I found out that the myth of a cork shortage is a complete lie and that when you extract cork it not only grows back but the trees take in 3-5x more CO2. I had to get the product and the information out into the world.
After digging around the internet I found that their was already a company selling wallets but the prices were absurd. How can we spread the use of cork if people have to pay $70 for a bifold wallet? You can't.
We took it upon ourselves to make cork a popular material by providing high quality items at fair prices. We want to spread its use, not gouge customers and make $50 per sale.
corature was born and we've been working hard to spread our products and cork ever since.
