Breaking the
boundaries in
textile with a
living material
called Cork.

Cork is nature’s own high-tech achievement.
Down to the cell structure, its unique composition
and characteristics cannot be replicated by anything
man-made.

Comfortable and warm feeling

The natural texture of cork combines softness
and flexibility to the touch with a naturally
surface.

Hypoallergenic

Because cork does not absorb dust, it helps to
protect against allergies and does not pose a
risk to asthma suffers.

high friction resistance
and good resilience

Cork is extremely resistant to abrasion and has a
high friction coefficient. Thanks to its honeycomb
structure, its resistance to impact or fiction is
greater than that of other hard surfaces.

We are Spinning the future of high performance sustainable fabric

We are part a evolutionary path where new process and technologies are constantly being developed. Every day we are inspired by the amazing materials we work with and driven by the desire to turn these materials into amazing products.

The combination of cork awaken our creativity, resulting in a sustainable field of visuals and performance. Our innovate production methods have made it possible to join fabrics with sustainable cork to create a range of exquisite textiles.

Sharing passion by
nature and innovation

A unique partnership has been set up with 2 companies with different business, but with the same passion, for nature and innovation.

With the scientific support of Citeve and Porto University we were able to develop innovative and high-performance products that simultaneously incorporate the properties of textile substrates at the level of comfort, touch and appearance and functional cork surplus value.
