Vegan purses made from cork in Skukuza, Kruger National Park.
Nothing is more stylish than Kindness!
These bags are made from cork harvested from oak trees.
When cork is harvested the tree is not hacked down. The bark is mindfully stripped away by hand and the tree is left to live its life.
It takes around 9 years for the bark to grow back to the correct thickness to harvest again, so the same tree isn't continuously hassled.
