Little Umbrella (Folding) Cork Skin by Pelcor at The Perfume Shoppe
Cork Color

Portable version of the iconic umbrella by Pelcor. Practical and timeless, with thinner grip and black frame for a more modern look. According to Pelcor, the umbrella is “Characterized by an elusive scent of dry wood and a smooth texture, Pelcor cork skin is extremely light, waterproof, flexible, resistant, insulating and environmentally friendly. As in nature, no two Pelcor pieces are exactly alike – subtle chromatic variations make each an utterly unique article.”
Cork is a renewable resource, although not rapidly renewable like bamboo. Once a cork oak tree is planted, it takes about 20 – 25 years for the bark to become harvestable. After the first harvest, though, it only takes about nine years for regeneration. Removing the bark from the cork oak does not hinder the tree’s growth and each cork oak has a life expectancy of about 250 – 350 years
The essence of every Pelcor piece is cork. Cork is a vegetal fabric extracted from the cork oak tree that thrives in the Mediterranean.

After the tiradia (process of harvesting), the cork is left to dry in the meadow. Raw planks of cork are then boiled, making them more elastic and easier to flatten, after which they are sorted by thickness and quality. Only the finest quality of cork is selected for manufacturing into Pelcor accessories.
