Hello, my name is Ana and I am the woman behind Pell d'Arbre. I'm the one who designs, makes and photographs the products, communicates, does customer service, manages the website etc.
I am Portuguese, born in an area very rich in cork oaks. Cork is a material that I am very fond of because it is part of my roots.
Cork is the bark of cork oak trees and its extraction is a very respectful and low-impact process, as the tree does not have to be cut down and the bark regenerates. Cork oaks are one of the most eco-efficient forest species, with each tree absorbing 5 tonnes of CO2 per year.
The brand’s accessories have a minimalist design and are produced in a “zero waste” manner. Some product's profits go to social, vegan or environmental ONGs in Spain and Portugal.
