Welcome to Queork. Because of the decline in wine bottlers using natural cork stoppers to save money the cork industry had to reinvent itself and thankfully so. Cork is naturally water resistant, stain resistant, odor resistant, hypo-allergenic, biodegradable, sustainable and vegan to name a few. It floats, is extremely lightweight and is washable with soap and water. Now available in fabric for everything from briefcases to pet collars, Queork aims to create ingenious products from this earth and fashion friendly material. See the store at http://queork.com/
