We experimented with cork as a cutting surface for nearly a year before bringing it to market. We were able to source cork from the north of China. The trees and the bark is thinner.
Some background on our cork: It is sustainably harvested without harming the tree in northern China (People are always surprised to learn that cork grows in China). The outer bark quickly regenerates and the tree continues to flourish, generally improving the tree?s health and vitality over its lifespan. We use high densitiy compression to make our cork boards extra tough. Once people try cutting on cork, they are often pleasantly surprised.
Chop food, not trees. These hand-crafted cutting/serving boards are indispensable in any kitchen. Thin and lightweight, their gently rounded edges mean no sharp corners. It absorbs little moisture and resists swelling and warping, making it a superior choice for everyday use. Check out more information on our cork cutting boards here.
Our cork boards cushion knife blades for softer action and sharper knives. They are naturally hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal. Fully reversible?cut on one side, serve on the other.
