Pop a Cork

Whether you're a wine lover, a nature lover, or you simply hunger for creative design, this is a kitchen essential you're sure to savor. It's crafted from ultra-thin sheets of cork, a sustainably harvested material that is supple, durable, and naturally water resistant. Derived from the bark of Cork Oak trees, the material's natural veining and stippled appearance gives a rich earthiness that is unexpected in a typically textile-based accessory. The dark-stained cork is set off nicely by the contrasting, lighter natural color of the ample central pocket, which is the perfect catchall for cooking utensils, towels or recipe cards. The apron is stitched around the edges and is reinforced with a cotton backing. Made in Portugal.

This unique apron may look like cloth at first glance, but take a closer look and you'll see that it's actually made from cork! Would you wear this naturally water resistant, easy to clean apron?

P.s. Hold your cursor over the image or click to enlarge to see the cork detail.

Hmm...it would have been helpful to have seen someone actually wearing it. The description says it's made from "ultra-thin sheets of cork and I need to see if it really hugs the body or just gets in the way.

I love the colors...my other half would wear this...an up-side is I can pin the grocery list on it while it hangs attractively in the kitchen!

It's machine-washing only for this family, so this one is a no-go.

i would have to see it. seems like it could be hard and stiff, or would break when it bent around a body

Gwen

It's a good idea but I can't see this being affordable, not on this website.

I like that is water resistant!

i like recycled stuff. don't know about the wash and wear of this item. an apron must be flame retardent and machine washable.

Cathy

Agree with the body hugging aspect, but thinking it will also protect against splatters and such in the kitchen. Im Portugese and also LOVE Wine, so...way to go Portugal!

It's a lovely apron but I gave it a thumbs down because it looked heavy. Maybe list the weight of the apron in the description.

Very different?,

Even if was given to me I wouldn't use it. Do people really wear aprons. Have my doubts.

This apron looks like it would hide stains well.

This is so unusual! I love the texture, the durable nature of the material, and that it is a natural fiber. This would be the ultimate "man" apron!! Let me know when I can buy one!!

Victoria

I don't think it would hold up well

Linda

Doesn't look like it should be used as a real apron. To dressy. Might be dangerous if gotten to close to stove

Patricia
Vote: Thumbs up!

I think this item might not show up stains as some apron's would. I just wish the neckband was adjustable.

Giselle

I don't wear aprons and if I did one made of cork seems like it would rip.

looks cheap

Francesca

I gave this a thumbs up because you didn't have an inbetween choice. It's an uncommon product...but aprons seem to not be much in style..although a cork one might make an unusual gift

Kathleen

How are you supposed to wash off the spaghetti sauce splatters????

Beckon

It needs more information, such as durability of the apron, not just the cork, and how to care for it. Beautiful item.

Da

Adorable! I'm worried about care for the item, since an apron can get pretty dirty.

Cork is becoming endangered. It seems wasteful to me to make a useless piece of "clothing" like an apron from such a limited resource.

Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

Thanks for the feedback, everyone! A few folks have asked about cleaning the cork. You can't machine wash it, but you can wipe it clean with water and use mild soap if necessary.

Laura
Vote: Thumbs down!

Not sure if it would wash well. Is it stiff? I don't wear aprons for the most part.

Judith
Vote: Thumbs down!

The thin cork, even though cotton-backed, would be awfully easy to tear within a short period of time.

Lora
Vote: Thumbs up!

Should have a picture of someone wearing it to see how stiff it is.

Regina

It's alright for a guy, I guess.

SUSAN

Love the look and colors but looks stiff. Would have liked to seen someone wearing it.

Cheryl

Beautiful and unique. I would like to know about it's flexibility. Can you move comfortably and freely in it?

Christi
Vote: Thumbs down!

Why?

Susan
Vote: Thumbs down!

Cute idea, but not for me.

charlene

Its water resistant but what about stains?

Lindsay

I think this would be a great gift for wine lovers.

I would spend money on a pretty apron...this one is not pretty.

Looks cool. I like it, but how do you clean it when barbeque sauce spills on it?
