Emerging Trend: Cork

| Post by: in Trends

Cork is a material which can be seen coming through this season in many areas such as fashion, footwear, gadgets, upholstery and accessories. Cork is given a new youthful look with specks and splashes of colour added to the surfaces. This can be done by painting, printing and stitching onto the surface making a versatile yet fashionable material to work with. As well as this it can easily be made into shoes and used for covering furniture or even used as wall covering.
