I’m Jenny and I set up Mind the Cork in 2013, with the aim of making cork homeware that is planet-friendly and beautifully crafted.
I have always loved surrounding myself with gorgeous and meaningful treasures. That combined with my passion for interesting and sustainable materials, has been my most significant inspiration to start making things and eventually creating Mind the Cork.
Cork is a brilliant material. Its harvest doesn’t require the trees to be cut down so it helps maintain wildlife diversity and promotes reforestation. It is also biodegradable, renewable and recyclable – I think that’s pretty fantastic!
Most of the time I design and make everything in my studio. For bigger or more complex projects, I work with craftspeople and manufacturers in or near London who are absolutely brilliant and help bring my ideas to life.
Contributing to help keep our beautiful planet safe and clean for future generations and being a positive member of society is very important to me. That is why all products are made with cork sourced directly from the harvesters in Portugal, and are produced here in the studio or by small manufacturers in the UK.
