How to use Your Vegan Cork Travel Bag

Our Cork Travel Bag is both lightweight and durable. However, to ensure your vegan Cork Travel Bag gets the life it deserves, we recommend that you adopt a few techniques to care for it. Cork is naturally insulating and mould resistant. As a result, it’s relatively easy to clean and maintain, although there are a few precautions you should be aware of to keep it looking its best.

Avoid Direct Sunlight

Cork is a natural wood product. Therefore, its colour will fade if it is exposed to direct sunlight over extended periods of time. Above all, avoid leaving your cork bag out in the sun or on windowsills where sunlight may occur to avoid excessive discolouring. Please be aware that overtime your Cork Travel Bag may naturally change colour slightly. We believe this adds character to what is a lovely, vegan, natural material.

Avoid Humidity

High levels of humidity in the air have been known to cause cork to buckle. To prevent your Cork Travel Bag from warping, avoid excessive exposure to damp environments. When not in use, keep your Cork Travel Bag in a dry room. Avoid storing it in your bathroom where levels of humidity may fluctuate.  If the cork becomes damp or something is spilt on it, dry clean with a cloth.

Please note that the inner lining is made from polyester to ensure a wipeable, water resistant finish.

Why We Love Our Vegan Cork Travel Bag

According to Moral Fibres, cork is one of the most sustainable materials in the world. But why I hear you ask? Well, cork comes from the Cork Tree. To extract cork from cork act trees you don’t need to cut down the tree. Instead, the bark is peeled away from the tree without damaging it, and cork is then carefully extracted by highly skilled harvester. The tree is no way damaged, the cork then regenerates and grows back with nice years – preserving the natural eco-system.

We love this material so much that we chose to replace our cotton travel bag with a cork one! It was even featured in the Sunday Times Travel Magazine in January 2020 (Feb edition / page 21) as the ‘Sustainably Grown One’ in their list of top eco-friendly travel bags.
