Mind the Cork
Emke Cork Vessel / Pot
The Emke Cork Vessel is a modern handmade fine grain cork pot that comes with a choice of natural cork and colourful lids.
They are the perfect addition to a fun and contemporary home. Use them as decorative desk tidies or small storage containers.
🪴 Thanks to the versatility, lightweight and water repellent nature of cork the pot can also be used as planter for small houseplants or cuttings. The pot can take 5.5cm and below nursery pots and its recommended that you wrap the inside of the cork pot with tin foil first.
Mind the Cork is a brand created by Jenny Espirito Santo. She creates fantastic, functional, eco-friendly, contemporary products using one of the world’s most underrated material.
Cork is a renewable material. Its collected by harvesting the trees bark so it does not require cutting down the cork oak trees and harvesting the bark does not harm the tree. Each time cork is harvested; cork bark regenerates itself and in doing so absorbs CO2. Harvested cork trees can live between 100 and 300 years; as a result the use of cork helps maintain wildlife diversity and promotes new planting as demand for it increases.
