Designer Spotlight: Artelusa

Soft. Durable. Sustainable.

Artelusa has been designing award-winning, natural cork products for over 30 years.  JJWells is please to offer a beautiful selection of their handbags.
The cork oak tree grows in extensive regions of the Mediterranean, especially in Portugal, where there are more than 2 million acres of cork forests.  This amazing tree owes its longevity (200 years on average) to its capability for regeneration, unparalleled in nature. Its bark can be stripped off, providing a versatile vegetable fiber which can be put to endless uses.  The tree then starts a new regeneration cycle lasting 7 to 9 years, until the next harvest.  Cork forests absorb vast amounts of CO2 in the atmosphere.  Cork is recyclable, biodegradable. light weight, and highly durable.

Artelusa was awarded the ‘PETA – Approved Vegan’ seal, which certifies that the vast majority of their products are 100% vegan.
