cork yoga mats rolled up against cork tree in Portugal cork forest

Harvested with renewable cork.

Cork is hand-harvested by removing the outer layer of bark in a process that does not harm the tree. New bark is revealed, given time to thicken, and harvested again every 9 years after the first yield. When its bark is harvested, an individual tree’s lifespan is doubled to 200 years, allowing it to remove up to 20 tons of CO2 from Earth’s atmosphere during its life. Our cork is harvested from the cork forests of Southern Portugal, the Lung of the Mediterranean. Our cork maker is a multi-generational family-run business working with local farmers who have harvested the same forests for over 100 years.

Cork, the natural alternative to plastic.


The cork forest removes 14M tons of CO2 from Earth’s atmosphere annually. Cork harvesting and production support 8,343 Portuguese cork makers and 135 flora species found within the cork forest.


An individual cork tree yields 15 harvests on average throughout its life. Cork is 100% biodegradable.


Cork is naturally antimicrobial, antibacterial, and odor-resistant, keeping cork pieces hygienic and eliminating the need for chemical cleaners.


Cork is resistant to water, tough, abrasion-resistant, and offers superior grip. Our cork yoga mats will far outlive any plastic or PVC mat.


Crafted from recycled cotton.

Recycled cotton reduces landfill waste and minimizes water consumption, CO2 emissions, and chemical usage. The cotton we use is from the textile waste of fine Portuguese cotton factories, the scraps of which are used by local artisans.

Our family-owned rug maker, founded 25 years ago, crafts eco-friendly textiles from recycled cotton scraps. Hand-woven in a Northern Portugal workshop, our durable and versatile rugs beautifully complement your home and interior sanctuary.

Cotton made with nature in mind.


Every ton of recycled cotton produced saves 200,000 gallons of water compared to virgin cotton. Recycled cotton eliminates waste in landfills and dramatically reduces water consumption, CO2 emissions, and the use of chemicals.


The cotton fibers we use are sourced from excess materials lovingly collected from fine Portuguese textile factories.


Our cotton pieces are hand-woven in a workshop located in Northern Portugal. Each cotton piece feels luxurious and displays the hallmarks of human hands through fine details and robust construction.


Handmade products are built to last. Our cotton pieces are incredibly durable and will stay with your family for years to come.
