‘Statement sustainability’ with Rusticork

WITH its ‘true bark texture’, RUSTICORK from Granorte is said to bring an original, bold and raw aesthetic to walls.

Says the company: ‘The RUSTICORK collection of panels by Granorte create natural, bold and beautiful walls that come directly from the renewable bark of cork trees. Available in a range of striking decorative effects, all remaining true to the natural textures of cork bark, RUSTICORK is a one-of-a-kind wall finish.

‘Granorte has used pigment dyes to bring even more creativity to the collection, enhancing striking textures in colours such as Bluemoon, black, ash grey, terracotta and warm white, as well as natural bark.’

The panel is made from pieces of raw cork bark – faced to an agglomerated cork backing for Sandstone and Bark textures –for a product that’s said to be natural and renewable, as well as close to original.

Paulo Rocha, Granorte, says: ‘Our range of cork products use processed waste product, but with RUSTICORK we’ve gone one step closer to harnessing the original material in its purest form. Taken directly from the harvest of cork bark, we select individual pieces and apply only what we need to create a functional and decorative wall panel.

‘Adding granulated cork and binding together, it’s a process that really is as minimal as it can be and one with a distinct and beautiful result.’

The company says: ‘RUSTICORK is completely free from formaldehyde, PVC and softeners for a product that’s non-hazardous and which is natural, biodegradable and recyclable. It also has functional benefits in use too.

‘Absorbing airborne sound and increasing thermal comfort, RUSTICORK helps make interiors more comfortable and it is finished with water-based CORKGUARD for protection from marks.’
Connecting walls to nature, RUSTICORK Is part of Granorte’s Delivering Nature Walls collection, which includes a range of decorative cork finishes suitable for use in commercial interiors. 
