The company can also tone the cork with natural honeyed tone which can be nuanced and take the most advantages of the satiny effect of the finishing. The company uses its versatility in applications from the ancient use for sandals to modern use and attractive attaché cases, light and airy hats, purses and handbags in an imaginative design, and even lightweight umbrellas but robust and effective.
