In today’s consumer goods, mass market, cookie-cutter world, it is rare for me to find something new that really just catches my eye. As I have gotten older, I have rid my world of clutter – almost to the point of being a minimalist – to make room for things that truly bring me joy.
This week I discovered a company that is so unique that I just have to share it with you!
First, the disclosure – this post contains affiliate links which means I will earn a commission if you make a purchase through one of the links. There is no additional cost to you and I only promote products/companies I truly love.
Queork is a fashion-focused retail company makes and sells home accessories, women’s and men’s accessories and gifts made with cork. Additionally, they train underserved New Orleans youth with the skills of basic to advanced manufacturing – how cool is that?
Cork is an extremely durable, vegan alternative to leather that is naturally water resistant, stain resistant, anti-microbial, and scratch resistant.
Queork has a great range of products from handbags (I want them all) to home accessories, jewelry and even collars for your pets! In the image above I have highlighted a few of my favorite Queork products:
Cork Saddle Bag – roomy and available in 8 different cork variations.
Cork Placemats – these are the last placemats you will ever need. Durable, easy to clean and they go with any decor – buy a set for yourself and gift your bestie a set! Actually, if you buy 6 placemats or more, you can save 10% with the code 6PLACEMATS.
Vibrant Meninas – colorful cork bracelets with a feather finding are available in 5 colors ideal for stacking.
Cork Shopping Tote – this versatile bag can do it all! Ultra light and measures 14″ x 15″ x 4 with an open exterior back side pocket, it can go from the farmer’s market to the beach in a snap.
2019 Casual Sneaker – I guarantee your friends will all ask where you got your shoes with the burned red and cork comfy sneaker by Queork. These will look great with jeans or even a simple t-shirt dress.
I never knew you could do so much with cork and the manufacturing process is fascinating! Most of Queork’s items can be customized with embroidery, too, making them a great gift. Take a look at Queork – you might just find a new obsession – just like I have!
