Our story began in the Summer of 2011 when my son searched for sustainable flip flops.....He looked in his favourite surf shops when he realised that all flip flops were made of rubber/plastic.
At that exact moment, he had his first idea - to create 100% eco-friendly flip flops. He realized Portuguese cork could be an original and sustainable material he could use, one morning when he was looking at Alentejo (South of Portugal) landscape, where there were those half-naked trees with no bark.
Draws his first sketch and this was just the beginning of the concept and inspiration for the name of the brand Original Cork, our family business.
In 2015 that young boy dream became a meaningful brand. Manufactured in Portugal, Original cork, an eco-friendly footwear brand is for different people with a common aim, the respect for sustainability.
