* MATERIALS USED *

The Lányos Handmade Collection is 100% handmade by me from vegan, sustainable, up cycled and/or repurposed materials whenever possible.  I am constantly looking for sources of quality materials.

I also have an extensive collection of materials, including hardware, cork vegan leather, Kraft-tex, fabric, repurposed leather and other repurposed materials and can always source materials to make that special item for you.

 

What is Cork Vegan Leather?

From the supplier’s website, MM Cork Supply:  

“I import the cork you see here from a manufacturer in Portugal.”

“Cork is an ecofriendly alternative to leather that is natural, sustainable, vegan, and PETA certified. The cork bark is peeled from the tree by skilled labourmen without harming the tree. The same tree can be reharvested every 9 years for up to 300! Cork leather is as strong as it’s animal counterpart, water resistant and has naturally occurring antibacterial & antimildew properties.”

“The cork I carry has been treated to be stain resistant (Scotch Guard) and has had a UV treatment and an abrasion treatment. They have been tested in external labs for abrasion (martindale test), UV resistance, Vamp Flex, and Ignition (fire).”

“It can be wiped clean with a soft cloth and weak soapy solution.”

This Cork fabric is soft, supple, strong, vegan, eco-friendly, sustainable, water resistant, durable, antimicrobial and hypoallergenic. 

Colours and Prints presently in stock are listed with the product.  Some colours may vary due to different monitor settings. More colours and prints are available from MM Cork Supply!  Just ask me!
