Our real cork fabric is incredibly soft and just delicious to touch. Just like on the tree, cork fabric readily sheds water. On top of that, it is an environmentally-friendly material that is both ecological and sustainable. Get the mat alone for a special activity (like crafting or cooking) or combine it with an apron and save!
These 11" x 17" mats are made from the same cork fabric as our aprons.
We have tossed all of our mats in the wash to see how they hold up. None were the worse for wear, not even the cork! Before washing, we even soaked the cork in water, smeared it with lotion, let it soak up oil, and covered it in soap. None of these resulted in any discoloration; we were joyfully astonished! Even though we had no wear in our washing machine test, with repeated washing machine use we expect the edges to fray. So, we recommend hand wiping/washing and hanging to dry.
Made in the USA.
