Cork Fabric

While nylon, leather, and cotton are some of the most popular materiels to make bags out of, there are endless amount of materials you can use. I enjoy seeing all different types, recently I've found out about cork fabric. It's durable, supple, has what I think is a unique look. Harvested from the bark of cork trees without killing them, it's a renewable resource that makes a stunning fabric. Here are some examples:
Tom Bihn Cork Swift


MOMA cork bag
Peasants and Traveller's Doctors Bag

The Tom Bihn Swift is an excellent Knitter's bag, hopefully I'll get a review of that in the future.
