Is there a cork shortage?

Posted by Kathy on January 11, 2017 in News

Having traveled through Portugal, we saw first hand that shortage of cork supply is a myth. People in the cork industry confirmed that there are plenty of cork trees and regular planting is ensuring a continuous and stable supply. Actually there enough cork trees today in the forests of Portugal to last more than 100 years. ThePortuguese government regulates the country’s cork industry and ensures the best care and ethics are used in harvesting. Cork bark renews itself after harvesting, and  no trees are cut down. These sustainable cork forests also provide habitat for birds and other wildlife .

  • I have two wonderful cork handbags and a wallet from Oxford Handbags. LOVE LOVE my handbag and wallet.. Women are always asking me about my handbags when I am out and about. Oxford Handbags are such a high end look and so well made! A tote along with a handbag makes a wonderful set! My purchase from Oxford Handbags was money VERY spent. My handbags will always stay in style and I do not think they will ever wear out. Thank you Oxford Handbags for making much a wonderful product. Looking forward to doing business with you soon.
