KORK.png

One of nature’s wonders

Cork comes from the bark of the cork oak, a predominantly mediterranean tree, and is removed without having to fell the tree or damage it in any way. The first peeling takes place when the tree is about 25 years old an regrown “insulation bark” can then be harvested every 8-9 years afterwards. Cork oaks may well live anything up to 200 years which means that they provide something like twenty peelings.

Cork is a one hundred percent ecological raw material and owes its unique properties to its cell structure of approx. 40,000 cells per square cm. The individual cells contain an air-like gas. Cork is truly one of nature’s wonders and LICO has developed their own special manufacturing processes to ensure that their products meet the exacting quality standards required by Swiss quality standards.
