Amor-im your life

Lesson of the day : how to transform cork in flooring and walls.
Better than learning from books, learning from experience. So direction Amorim Revestimentos factory ! Mariana was so kind to show us around. It was very nice to see how they make everything from the grain to the board. Now we have a clear idea of what material is going to be on our floors… cork for sure! They have so many options that we had a hard time choosing the one we wanted when we got back to the studio, but finally we did it.

extra thin layer of cork made by slicing a big block of cork that was made by pressing different corkpieces together. That's what gives this special pattern.
