Cork is the outer bark of the cork tree, which grows mainly around the Mediterranean region. Most cork trees have a life-span of around 200 years and each tree must be around 20 - 25 years of age before it can be harvested of cork. After harvesting the tree starts to regenerate a new layer of cork which takes on average 9 years before it is ready to be harvested again. With the increasing concern for the environment Cork flooring has to be one of the most sustainable sources for flooring as the tree itself is never cut down or removed.
It is also very comfortable under-foot, warm, and good for sound and thermal insulation.
