Who would have guessed that there would be knobs and hooks made out of cork? Well, while it's far from a common material in the furniture accessories' market, it is still possibly the most elementary material we used in the past. Take wine corks, for example. Cork has been there for a long time. Great to see it to become more appreciated and accessible material also in interior design.
Now, natural cork grows on the surface of cork trees. And while you have to cut down a tree to produce a wooden handle, with cork, you harvest it from the surface of the tree. And the cork then grows back. It's hard to find any material that can compete with this from an ecological perspective.
The Sobreiro knobs/hooks are all made from cork harvested in Portugal. They are available in three different sizes. Use them as knobs on your drawers or as a hook to hang your clothes on. Mix and match various sizes for a more significant effect in your interior.
Each cork product comes with necessary screws for wall-mounting as well as for mounting them on the cabinets. Avoid placing the Sobreiro knobs on extra heavy doors like integrated freezers and refrigerators.
Independent on the size of the product, they all look large and will stand out whether you use them on a cabinet or the wall. Still, Sobreiro hooks/knobs in cork with its rounded edges add much softness and warmth to your home. It is a must-have interior detail for anyone who appreciates an eco-lifestyle.
