Schoeller Corkshell

by DrPrem Jagyasi

Corkshell, developed by Schoeller Textil AG, is the new corkshell technology combines the outstanding natural features of cork with the functionality of high quality fabrics. It is made of an FSC-certified cork granulate that is a by-product in the manufacture of wine corks. This natural granulate is pulverized and firmly anchored as a coating in a special process patented by Schoeller.

Corkshell provides up to 50% higher thermal insulation in relativity to traditional soft-shells and is highly breathable. Corkshell fabrics are extremely delicate and soft to the touch, apart from being extremely lightweight. In addition, they offer high comfort and aid in moisture and odour management.

The technology is suitable for all kinds of seasons, be it winter, autumn or spring.
