From the trees to your interiors. Cork wall coverings are made of natural cork slices with a natural treatment and finished in an innovative immersion process. The high value raw material reflects simplicity with an updated touch from the contemporary formats of design.
Cork is produced from the bark of the Cork Oak tree.Strips are carefully removed from the tree-trunk by hand,without causing any damage to the tree.
Although the first extraction of cork from the tree takes about twenty-five years, it is a wait that is worthwhile.
Cork has a range of application attributes that no other has been able to imitate, match or exceed it is a natural material known for its buoyancy, elasticity, insulation properties and near impermeability. However, there are other aspects that also differentiate cork from other materials: it is renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable – very important aspects to Muratto.
Last, but not least, because cork stems from nature, and is truly natural,
it is impossible to find two exact pieces. Through the combination of nature and design, Muratto is able to offer a multitude of texture, colour and shape choices.
