T&G FSC® Cork
T&G's FSC® Certified Cork Collection
‘In nature nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything is transformed.’
We can see the appeal of a kitchen filled with fancy things, but we do sometimes ignore the basics and the importance of the environment - T&G's FSC® Certified Cork tablemats, pot stands and coasters give back - they look great, are practical, functional and environmentally friendly.
T&G's FSC® certified cork table mats are harvested from trees that regenerate themselves, designed and turned into coasters and pot stands which are perfect for protecting work surfaces and table tops.
Cork is an ecologically acceptable product as it is one of the only materials which regenerates itself.
‘Without a doubt, one of the most fascinating idiosyncratic aspects of the cork oak forest lies in its regenerative power. The more it is harvested, the more it protects the environment.’
Cork is in fact the outer bark of the cork oak tree, which is grown in Portugal, Spain, South of France and along the North African Coast. The bark is stripped only in summer and the first stripping must wait until the tree is about twenty years old. Subsequent strippings take place every nine or ten years.
Cork tablemats are an ideal natural base for any dining table!
