You’ll notice some similarities between our popular Regaliz®, Flat and Round leather cords and this new cork cord. This colorful and earthy cork cord works well on all of our leather beading components.

For our designers who are looking for non-animal products for their Vegan customers the flat & round cork cord is 100% vegan so you can feel great about designing eco-friendly jewelry!

Another style that may be familiar to you is our braided cork cord. Available in a variety of gauges, this braided cork cord is great for adding layers of alternating texture and patterns to your creations.

Our new exotic and colorful Samunnat large-hole beads look amazing on the 10mm oval cork cord.

This line of Portuguese cork cord is harvested in an eco-friendly manner. This is especially significant since the trees help their environment from becoming arid and thus helps to maintain rare and delicate ecosystems.

With a new style of beading cord comes all sorts of amazing new creations and designs. We’re so excited to see what you come up with using these variations of beautiful cork cord, so be sure to contact us and share your designs with us!
