FOReT embodies the spirit of nature with elegant and timeless fashion accessories handmade in Europe from “Cork”. Exclusive and sophisticated, FOReT brings together style and function with fine craftsmanship. Here’s a little something to know about the cork fabric: Cork is developed from the bark of the Cork Oak Tree that grows in abundance in the Mediterranean region. The tree is harvested every 9 years by gently removing the bark. This causes no harm and allows the tree to rejuvenate and it can live up to another 100 years! The material retains the structure of the bark and is visually attractive, extremely soft, light and water resistant. With time, it will age gracefully and retain its natural appeal.
