Our story began in the Summer of 2011 when my son searched for sustainable flip flops...He looked in his favorite surf shops when he realised that all flip flops were made of rubber/plastic.
At that moment he started his first idea to create all sustainable flip flops. He remembered Portuguese cork would be an original and amazing material which he recognised from 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, a eco-friendly footwear brand is for different people with a common aim, the respect for sustainability.
