Cork: A Natural Resource

Cork is the basis of our renowned Birkenstock footbeds. Cork is a natural resource with ideal properties. It is lightweight, flexible, absorbs minimal amounts of water, and has an antibacterial quality. It takes only a decade for the cork oak tree to develop a layer of useable cork. The cork bark is carefully removed so the tree trunk won't be damaged. It takes 30-40 years for a tree to yield its first harvest. The bark is stored outside for about 1 to 2 years; then it is boiled in water and cut into strips, ground and sifted into different size granules. Depending upon the use, granules are sorted by 3-4 weight classes. Birkenstock only uses the lightest and best grade cork available.
