Cork Purses

Cork is a wonderful material, actually made from the bark of the cork tree.  The best quality cork comes from Portugal, where they strictly enforce how often the bark can be harvested.  This allows the trees to grow to be up to 250 years old.  Cork is durable, water and stain resistant, and has a wonderful silky feel.  Can be cleaned with mild soap and water.  Here in the tropics it lasts longer than leather.
