… is a very young company, that appreciates very old traditions.
Just like the Japanese bonsai masters, we want you to enjoy pleasant and meditative moments; to bring that feeling of the outdoors, indoors.
We currently have nine base modules, each with its own functionality. The use of expanded cork gives the product a robust appearance…
We don’t want to limit your creativity in how you use our base modules, but we’ve selected some of our favourite elements…
ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS...
not just a any tree, but…the
better known as the cork oak
Also known as the Sobreiro (in Portugese)
After harvesting the cork, the excess trimmings – the grey outer layer of the bark and the virgin cork – are all collected and ground into tiny pieces. Steam passed through the resin at a temperature of 400°C causes it to become liquid again. All the coarse grains then blend with the natural glue creating a new material which can be used for many different purposes. And this is the moment that Kurkasa really looks forward to.
Together with Pro Suber, Kurkasa has developed a process which improves the quality of the expanded cork. This material is ideal for making beautiful, sustainable, and ecological products.
