The Cork Has Escaped the Wine Bottle
Cork, as we have discussed throughout this blog, is becoming a way of life. Our company, AmCork, offers products for your flooring and wall covering needs. Our variety of cork floor tiles and cork wall tiles reflect many different styles and varying degrees of sophistication. But cork, as a natural material, is showing up in lots of other stylish places outside the home that we didn’t expect. It’s becoming an integral part of our society. From hospitals to catwalks, cork trends are taking root!
Nike launched the new Lebron X Cork on February 23, 2013. Have you seen this shoe? Never would I have expected Nike, a company for hard core athletic gear and athletes, to successfully brand a cork shoe in the market, but it’s pretty snazzy for sportswear. Nike stated, “This shoe shares many of the same characteristics as the original, with one key difference: an upper constructed of genuine cork. It’s a shoe fit for a king.” We couldn’t agree more!
Further evidencing the fact that cork is beginning to infiltrate the fashion world at the speed of light are the number of high-end designers using this material in their collections. Check out this amazing clutch from Judith Leiber or this handbag by Christian Louboutin! Both are unique and show off the simplicity of cork partnered with tremendous style. Manolo Blahnik offers their high priced BB Polished Cork Pumps, showing that cork can complement and "polish" off any outfit. Donald J. Pliner has offered an entire collection of his shoes and accessories centered around cork.
The neutrality of the cork shown by these fierce fashion designer in their collections can transcend from the runway into your own home today. Choose a lifestyle of comfort and tranquility; these environmentally beneficial products lay at your feet (literally) for your shopping pleasure. You only have to select what color and texture palette you desire to begin placing this trend in your home today.
