cork cord, straps & handles
HOW WE MAKE CORK CORD & STRAPS
Cork cord, straps and handles are handcrafted in our studio with the unique reversible cork fabric and using a manual lace-making tool for leather. Depending on the final application, we may use the single layered reversible fabric or the thicker version that has two backing layers.
DIFFERENT SIZES, THICKNESSESS AND COLORS
We offer different widths, from strings with 3mm (1/8") to straps with 3.8cm (1.5") and different lengths (maximum 1.4m / 1.5yards). The width is customizable. Different thicknesses are also available. The thicker option will be 2.2mm (7/8") thick, perfect for belts, collars, watchbands, etc. The thinner solutions will work beautiful for jewellery.
We may help you deciding the best type of strap/handle for your job, it will depend on the final use. It’s even possible to design a product that will meet your specific needs. We can have different colours and patterns made to order, respecting a minimum order quantity.
