Woven cork based fabric
London based designer Yemi Awosile has developed a new fabric with an innovative combination of repurposed cork and elastine. Cork fabric is suited to interior design applications such as upholstery, wall coverings and wall panels, and benefits from the high elasticity of elastane fiber as well as the acoustic and thermal insulating properties found in cork. The cork is made up of the by-product from wine stopper production and is treated with a metallic finish. The fabric is available in a variety of colors and fiber combinations.
