CORK RAINCOAT

PRACTICAL, LIGHTWEIGHT, AND LUXURIOUS RAINCOAT MADE WITH CORK

The project

The idea is to design a practical, lightweight, and luxurious raincoat substituting PVC for a natural material: cork fabric.  The design will be minimalist and modern, and the raincoats will possess much sought-after qualities such as being breathable, sustainable and soft, yet waterproof. The project will use the traditional knowledge existent in Portugal of the cork industry to preserve a heritage. The cork tree is well known for its inherent purification properties, which will have a beneficial impact on the local environment.
