is a wonder of Nature: it grows only on one tree, the Cork
Oak, which is ideally suited to the southern climate at the west of the Mediterranean basin and on the Atlantic Coast.Cork bark
renews itself every 9 or 10 years for over approximately 150 years and the period for the harvest is between the beginning of June and end of August. The cork
will then be left in piles for approximately 3 months.
After the harvest the cork is taken to the factories for boiling which will improve the elasticity and homogeneity of the material and to make it flat. The cork
will be finally ready in planks for production 3 or 4 weeks later.
