WHERE LUXURY MEETS SUSTAINABILITY
MADE IN PORTUGAL
Our mats are made with sustainable and biodegradable cork – in fact, each harvest of cork tree contributes to the life and longevity of the tree.
The suberian wax found in the cell walls of cork makes it impermeable to liquids and resistant to moisture for a longer and stronger life.
Every Corc Yoga mat is thoughtfully designed and no two are alike.
Thanks to cork’s honeycomb structure, our mats are naturally non-slip. The grip actually increases as you sweat, making it suitable for all types of yoga.
Our products are chemical free and do not contain heavy metals or harsh hormone-disruption materials such as PVC or latex.
Cork is naturally antimicrobial, resistant to dust & mites, making it an ideal material for those who suffer from allergies and asthma.
- HOW WE MAKE OUR CORK PRODUCTS -
Portugal boasts an impressive industry, designed to protect the integrity of the environment. Under Portuguese law, Cork trees have their bark shaved only every 9 years, allowing the trees to naturally regenerate their bark. This natural process keeps the trees healthy allowing them to live up to 200 years.
Portugal’s cork production creates a significantly positive effect on the country’s largest export and steady income. The cork industry provides as many as 20,000 well-paying seasonal jobs throughout 500+ cork production factories each year, despite an otherwise slow moving economy and higher than average unemployment rates. Here at Corc Yoga, we are proud to be partnering with a factory that has been in the cork industry for the past 100 years.
