It’s hard to find a vegan leather bag that doesn’t contain some form of plastic. However, there are new strides being made in sustainable vegan leather production including, most notably, leather made from cork. Other materials used to make vegan leather include pineapple leaves or other fruit waste.

Cork leather is the most environmentally friendly vegan leather on the market. The leather is made from the bark of Cork Oaks, a tree that is native to the Mediterranean. Harvesting the cork from the trees helps stimulate regeneration which extends the life of the tree. The cork is then dried for 6 months, boiled then pressed into sheets bonded by suberin (an adhesive that naturally occurs in the cork) before a fabric backing is added.

Cork is water and flame resistant as well as being hypoallergenic. It has a smooth and shiny appearance and, not dissimilarly to leather, only gets better with age. Cork leather is also lighter than real leather while still being strong and durable. This means that travel bags and backpacks are far more lightweight to carry around while still being strong enough to hold your belongings. 

MAHI are proud to introduce our new vegan cork leather in our classic backpack and duffle bag designs.
