You see it on the base of coasters, stuffed in your favorite wine bottles, and hanging on the walls of the office. Cork is downright awesome, and has long been valued for its durability and versatility. Thanks to today’s designers, the eco-friendly nature of cork and its fun, quirky look make it in style. It’s no wonder why we love cork, but in case you need a few more reasons why it’s cool to be corky, check out a few of our favorite cork-based gifts.

Firebrick cork wallet clutch (natural cork clutch pictured above)
This clutch is made from eco-friendly cork fabric that is 100% natural and renewable and comes from Portugal, the largest producer of cork in the world. Did you know cork fabric is made from the bark shavings of the cork oak tree and transformed into thin sheets?

Eco-friendly Cork Mobile iPhone Case. A cork case is just as durable as any other case, but more sustainable, combining the earthy look of cork with a classy style. And it’s incredibly easy to clean - just wipe it with a damp cloth and you’re good to go.

Coaster Set- The Chicken King. All hail the king of the coffee table! The Chicken King Coaster Set comes with four circular coasters in different color combinations, featuring fun designs of cool chicks with crowns- because every table needs some clucking protection.

Champagne Cork Ring. “Green” and gorgeous, this cork ring is made from a real champagne cork. If you’ve saved a cork from a momentous occasion, send it in to Avant Garde Design so you can remember those special moments for years to come.

Cork Cuff. Whoever said you couldn’t wear cork? Made right here in the U.S. from 100% recycled cork, this snazzy cuff makes a stunning addition to any outfit, great for guys and girls.
