Genuine Cork is a naturally versatile, renewable and sustainable material that, through the hands of Isabel Silva, CEO of Sildel – We Think Cork, has gained a new purpose, presenting several advantages over other materials.

In this blog article, we will talk about what genuine cork is and what its benefits are when applied in decoration pieces, capable of creating cozy, elegant, luxurious and refined environments.

What is genuine cork?

Genuine cork is produced from the bark of the cork oak, which is a tree native to Portugal, Spain and other Mediterranean countries. The cork is harvested sustainably, without harming the tree, and goes through a process of cleaning and treatment before being cut into different shapes and sizes.

Benefits of genuine cork in decorative pieces:


Genuine cork is a renewable resource, which means that it is an environmentally friendly choice for decorative pieces. The cork is harvested responsibly and the tree is capable of regenerating itself, which makes cork a sustainable and ethical choice. In addition, cork is a biodegradable and recyclable material, which means it does not pollute the environment and can be reused.


Genuine cork is a durable material, being naturally resistant to water, fire and insects. Cork decoration pieces can last for many years, maintaining their appearance and quality, becoming a piece that can be passed from generation to generation.

Style, beauty and uniqueness

Cork is a naturally beautiful and elegant material. It has a soft and pleasant texture to the touch, with a unique pattern that varies according to the tree it is harvested from. Thus, because each piece of cork is different from every other, each piece is impossible to replicate, and always becomes unique.

In conclusion, cork is a durable, insulating, elegant and versatile material that can be used to create high-quality decorative pieces. It is a smart choice for those who want beautiful and sustainable decor. If you haven’t tried cork in your decoration yet, it’s time to consider this option and enjoy all its benefits.
