Cork Fabric


Cork Fabric now in Canada!

amazing new Fabric!
Cork fabric utilizes the natural beauty and warmth of cork while allowing for the richness and durability of leather.

cork fabric is produced without harming any animal or plant.
For the production of cork fabric no heavy metals or their compounds,organic solvents,mineral fibres or formaldehyde are used.


Cork fabric is called nature’s leather, as it has a similar texture and feel to leather.
Cork fabric, or cork leather as it is sometimes called, is a high quality fabric produced from thin cork shavings obtained directly from the bark of the cork oak tree.
Much of the production is hand crafted.

The innovative characteristics of cork fabric are unique and original. Being durable and strong, it can be used in accessories and bags, just like leather.
Apart from being beautiful and soft, the fabric is hypoallergenic, anti-fungal and waterproof.
Therefore, it is clean and easy to maintain.






No tree is cut down to harvest cork. The cork comes from the outer bark of the cork oak tree.
To harvest cork, it is stripped off the tree by hand about every nine to twelve years.
After harvesting, the tree continues to form new layers and restore its protective barrier.
Each tree can produce cork for about 200 years. As the trees mature, the harvests produce thicker cork that is even better quality.
The cork oak tree is native to the coastal areas of Portugal, Spain and France, and is the national tree of Portugal.

Cork is unique
Because cork comes from nature, it offers a variation of unique grain, texture, and color choices. No two pieces of cork are the same.

How can you go green with cork?
You can benefit the environment by using cork products in your next project.
Not only will you be using an eco-friendly material, you will be saving the cork forests and supporting thousands of family farmers.






Natural cork fabric, perfect for sewing on a home sewing machine! Great for bags and wallets.
The real cork is backed with a thin layer of fabric.

Environmentally friendly and ecologically correct
Easily cleaned and long lasting
Durable as leather, versatile as fabric
Waterproof and stain resistant
Dust, dirt, and grease repellent

From Samantha's Blog

I recently started sewing with cork, and I found it to be quite addictive, so I wanted to share with you a few projects and tips if you're interested in trying it out!
While the cork has extra body and firmness, I like it with the same foam interfacing that I would use when making a structured bag

I was able to sew the cork with my regular sewing machine foot, but when it started getting warmer, the sewing was made easier with use of a Teflon foot (which I use when sewing with vinyl).

Kona Cotton Solids -Robert Kaufman





Check out what Jenny does with Kona Jelly Rolls!

2-1/2" Strips make the easiest Bargellos!



I LOVE - LOOOVE SOLIDS!
love how free motion quilting looks on Kona cotton

For Quilts I often decide on my print and then pull colors from that for solids - lots of solids!
Modern Quilters make great use of solids to produce amazing quilts

There’s no getting around it: if you quilt, you definitely need a good collection of cotton solids.
If you sew bags or clothes or home decor projects, you probably do too.
But as far as solids go, there are so many choices.


What our customers say

background fabrics like white I buy by the bolt, or wait for a sale and buy a lot of it. Most solids are cheaper than print fabrics…another reason to love solids!
I usually add 2-3 solids to every quilt depending on the size, not including the background fabric.
Kona Ash and Kona Silver are ones I always buy in bulk.

Burlap Fabrics - Chalk Fabric & accessories




Burlap an old time favorite


ChalkBoard Fabrics

Cure the chalkboard fabric: Lay the fabric right side up, and rub the entire surface with chalkboard chalk, first in the horizontal and then in the vertical direction. Clean the fabric with a damp cloth; then repeat the process. Use a wool setting on your iron and a dry press cloth; press from the wrong side to remove wrinkles. Press seams using a wooden pressing tool, such as the Little Wooden Iron. Stitch with a Teflon Foot for best results. If you use a standard presser foot, use tissue paper or wax paper between the fabric and the presser foot for a smoother glide. Use a size 80 Universal Needle. Pin with Wonder Clips or double-sided basting tape. Set the sewing machine for a longer stitch length, 3.5 mm. Shorter stitches weaken the fabric. Select all-purpose thread for both the needle and the bobbin. Use regular chalkboard chalk or Chalk Markers to write on the chalkboard fabric. (Avoid sidewalk chalk.)

Sullivans Spray Fabric Stabilizer is a top Favorite with our customers who use Silk Fabrics


Before you begin, there are a few things to keep in mind while sewing silks. A simple way to ensure good stitch quality is to adjust the stitch length. For silks, shorten the stitch length to 2mm; you’ll have fewer puckers. As you sew, hold the fabric both in front of and behind the needle to give the fabric a little tension. Don’t pull the fabric through the machine—just lightly guide it.

After you sew any seam, press it flat to meld the stitches before you proceed to the next step.

I prefer to use IB C glass-head silk pins. Be sure to change your pins often.
Start each project with a new needle, and adjust the size according to the weight of the fabric. A universal needle, size 70/10, is a good starting point.
