Wickander Corkcomfort - Slate Tawny
Wicanders® is a truly sustainable brand! The starting point is a raw material that is extracted cyclically from the cork oak trees without ever damaging them. This raw material is then transformed into products of high added value while biodiversity, economic and social sustainability are simultaneously fostered.
Wicanders® also looks out for your future! Its products retain CO2, which would otherwise contribute to global warming. It is estimated that the Portuguese cork oak forest - montado - is responsible for retaining 5% of the country's annual CO2 emission, representing 4.8 million tons per year.
In the last years, Wicanders® has been the environmentally conscious world leader of the cork industry. As a world leader, it is in a position to have a powerful impact on the conservation of our environment.
Wicanders's cork products are uniquely balanced between the creation of wealth and the protection of the environment.
