The Journey of Cork
A Cork Concepts floor is steeped in tradition and craftsmanship. From the ancient forests of the Mediterranean, Cork Concepts brings you a floor as innovative in design as it is practical in comfort and warmth.
Employing a traditional method which dates back centuries, the cork farmer strips the outer bark from the cork tree. Like giant cinnamon curls, the sections of cork rest in the forest before being loaded onto an old truck and taken to the mill. After pressing and squaring, it rests for a further five months before being carved into tiles.
Once on New Zealand shores, the cork is transformed to suit our luxury designer market. Although the natural tiles are still popular, Cork Concepts has expanded to include shimmering metallics and an unlimited range of colours.
For over forty years Cork Concepts has refined the craft of cork manufacturing. Dedicated to our customer’s comfort and health, Cork Concepts has perfected a pre-finished 1 day system to ensure minimal disruption to your daily life.
