Benefits of Cork Jewelry

Vegan cork leather is a true vegan and environmentally friendly leather alternative. The cork is harvested from cork oak trees the majority of which comes from the Mediterranean and Portugal. The cork is harvested in strips which can be harvested every 9-12 years and causes no damage to the trees itself. These cork oak trees also enjoy a long life of up to 200 years old. What is created is a sustainable, biodegradable, waterproof, and green product which you can feel good about wearing! Here at Gem Lounge Jewelry we make a variety of cork jewelry especially our line of cork bracelets which are becoming increasingly popular and can be found online here at our store and also at retail stores around the country.
