How do I care for my BENT&BREE products?
Easily maintain your cork bag and other products with a simple cleaning method. Just use a damp cloth with mild soap, gently scrubbing as needed. The cork’s unique properties, including the presence of Suberin in its cell membranes, prevent it from absorbing dust, dirt, or moisture. Keep your items looking fresh and clean effortlessly!
What is so unique about cork products?
Cork is one of the most natural sustainable materials in the world. Its unique composition and characteristics cannot be replicated. Cork is extracted from the bark of the cork oak tree, leaving the tree unharmed. Fully natural, renewable, and recyclable, cork products boast unique characteristics: lightweight, durable, easy to clean, hypoallergenic, flame retardant, vegan, and inherently eco-friendly. Each item is distinctive, as no two are ever the same!!
