Sewful Therapy's cork has been tested thoroughly for quality by bag makers for bag makers. The high-quality cork itself is certified and imported from Portugal. 

Cork fabric is an eco-friendly and wonderful alternative to leather. It is not only pliable and durable for crafts and bags, it has anti-microbial properties. 

Benefits of Cork:

  • Sustainable & Ethical Fashion
  • 100% Vegan
  • Can be harvested without harming the tree
  • Biodegradable and compostable 
  • Anti-Microbial Properties
  • Anti-Static
  • Waterproof
  • Stain Resistant
  • Easy to Clean
  • Light Weight
  • Can be Embroidered On

How to Sew with Cork:

  • Use a Leather Needle size 90/14, Microtex 80/12 - preferably new needle
  • Preferably give ¼” (quarter inch) to ½” (Half an inch) seam allowance to your panels and Topstitch- 1/16” (one by sixteenth inch) to 1/8” (one by eight-inch)
  • Decrease your pressure foot pressure; test sew till the desired outcome is reached.
  • Lengthen your stitch to 3.5-4.0 as too tiny of stitches will perforate your cork and tear easily.
  • If doing embroidery or decorative stitches on a thinner variety of cork sheet, medium weight or heavyweight stabilizer will help the cork from pulling on dense stitches.
  • Avoid sewing near the selvedge - recommend at minimum 1" away from the selvedge as cork adherence is weaker along those edges
  • Be gentle when poking out edges
  • Do not press down hard/tight on folded cork fabric

Sewful Therapy Portugal Cork is sold in 18" x 52" and will be shipped rolled.
