Opera Shoulder Bag Red Leather & Crocodile Cork by Pelcor at The Perfume Shoppe
Croco & Red Leather
Large bag that combines cork in croco pattern with red contrast leather and aged gold details. Leather and chain strap. Flap with metal corners. Internal pouch pocket. The essence of every Pelcor piece is cork. Cork is a vegetal fabric extracted from the cork oak tree that thrives in the Mediterranean.

A symbol of renewal and longevity, the cork oak has a lifetime of 250-350 years and is the only tree whose bark regenerates itself after each harvest. It takes 20 to 25 years before the first cork can be removed from a cork oak. After the first extraction, cork can be harvested every nine years. An adult cork oak produces several hundred pounds at each harvesting and will live for many generations. It survives and prospers as part of a unique worldwide ecosystem: the cork oak meadow.

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.

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.
