Cork Upholstery and Wallcovering Textile
This distinctive upholstery textile is made with natural cork, one of the most sustainable natural materials. Once the bark of a live cork oak tree is stripped, it will regenerate every nine–ten years. The material is composed from pieces of the bark, which are processed without chemicals and bonded to a nonwoven backing for stability. The textile is then treated with a spray acrylic that provides stain resistance. What results is a high-performance upholstery textile with a luxurious feel comparable to soft leather, but without the maintenance concerns. Hypoallergenic, mildew-resistant, and impermeable to liquids, these textiles are also Class A rated as per ASTM E84, making them suitable for use as a wallcovering.
In this Wolf-Gordon exclusive, the sandy color of natural cork sprinkled with hints of turquoise brings to mind the hues of an ocean beach, which gives this quirky textile pairing its name (“playa” is Spanish for “beach”). Due to its cell structure and light weight, raw cork is a good insulator, and it can float.
