* Why are our cork bags and wallets limited?

We are a young self-funded company. We manufacture our bags and wallets in collaboration with a small traditional company in Portugal.

For this reason, we initially offer our designs in a limited edition. Your advantage here: MATES OF NATURE cork bags and wallets made of cork are not a mass product!

With your MATES OF NATURE cork bag or purse, you will receive a designer piece that is 100% animal-free (no leather or other animal materials), mostly made from the nature-based material cork and produced locally in Portugal, the country of cork.

Why is cork the ideal alternative for leather?

Regardless of whether you live vegan or not, there are good reasons to use cork as a leather alternative. Leather can cause allergies and can be carcinogenic due to the partially toxic chemical leather tanning. As a consumer, however, you rarely notice this and you can hardly protect yourself.

With our designer handbags and wallets made of cork you get an ideal alternative, because cork is anti-allergic, a natural material and on top of that 100% vegan.
