Cork flooring for the 21st century. Waterproof, ultra-green and easy to lay, Corka is an award-winning take on an old flooring favourite. It’s finished with a tough protective coating which makes it great for busy family homes and commercial spaces alike. More
WHY WE LIKE IT
Easy to fit - Click system for fast laying on any flat surface
Tough and waterproof - Finished with a durable matt-laquered coating for easy cleaning. This gorgeous natural design is great for kitchens
The most popular of all our Corka range, Amizade is a cork click flooring with a beautiful, varied texture and a natural colouring. It is made with slices of hand-harvested bark from the cork oak which are carefully laid into a mosaic-like pattern, with an interplay of light and dark cork flooring elements. One of Amizade’s strengths is its versatility: it looks equally good in a small bathroom as it does as in a large space as a commercial cork flooring. Our Amizade was a key feature in the design of London’s first zero-waste restaurant, Silo, which won the Best Commercial Interior prize at the prestigious Surface Design Awards. Close
Climate positive - Corka actually removes more carbon from the atmosphere than is used in its manufacture
Warm and quiet - Cork’s natural honeycomb structure makes it extremely quiet and comfortable underfoot. Works well with underfloor heating too
Pure - Unlike other cork flooring, Corka contains no MDF or fibreboard filler
Corka is made using the bark of the cork oak, an evergreen which grows up to 20m high and lives for up to 200 years. The bark has a honeycomb cell structure, a natural fire retardant with exceptional insulating properties.
No trees are cut down during harvesting. The process requires great expertise (it is the highest paid job in Portuguese agriculture) and involves carving the bark off once every nine years. The first harvest takes place only 25 years after planting.
All of our cork comes from a 700,000-hectare forested ecosystem in southern Portugal known as the Montado, whose trees are protected by law. These forests make a significant contribution to reducing global warming, capturing an estimated 5 percent of the country’s annual CO2 emissions, or 4.8 million tons per year.
The sustainably managed cork forests support many endangered species including the Imperial eagle, wolves and the Iberian lynx, one of the most endangered cats in the world.
Our cork flooring is easy to lay and works well with underfloor heating; there’s no varnishing involved and the planks simply click together. It's your choice whether to glue down or install as a "floating floor". Many of our customers lay it themselves as a DIY project, but if you are looking for an experienced fitter, we can help – just email us your postcode.
