For Ivy we use cork in addition to a robust cotton strap. Cork is often referred to as the new leather because the characteristics of both materials are very similar. However, cork has the advantage of being 100% ecological and sustainable.
In order to produce the cork, no trees have to be felled. Only the uppermost cork layer is removed from the old cork oaks. These bark is then cut into thin strips and applied to a carrier material. Finally, our cork, which comes from Portugal, receives a special gold foil. This gives Ivy its unique surface.
