Our story

materials used in our story

Cork Boutique was born as a necessity to create natural beauty, to create something easy to use. Cork Boutique is like an escape from the tedious reality that surrounds us. Our products have a Romanian original design and they are eco-friendly. They are practical, stylish and elegant. Add value to the room. As an engineer, I love accuracy and so all the products I create are precise laser cut.

Our story begins with the LED Lighting Products we sell in our store. They are perfect as functionality but tedious as appearance. White plastic, grey aluminum are not particularly joyful to a tired eye.

Therefore I developed a frame for LED panel downlights. First, I used wood to give them natural appearance and, step by step, the developing process led to cork. If you don’t know by now, cork is a versatile fascinating natural material, manufactured from oak bark which has the main capacity to regenerate itself.

And so began the story of the eco-friendly Chameleon Frames. The exterior mask is attached with magnets to be changed whenever is desired. This is why they are called Chameleon frames. They are made of rough and varnished MDF, rough or decorative cork and magnets.

The result? Our panels have finally character, personality.

The new perspective led to new ideas. I’ve soon discovered that I can fix my old issue with the cardboard boxes for napkins: and that is when you pull out the napkin and you take also the box. So I created the VIP box for napkins: light, easy to fill up, elegant, perfect for present. The box can also be personalized. Decorative cork combined with varnished MDF and magnets for the cover, the boxes are a pleasant experience.

And this isn’t all!

Now we offer cork coasters made with the same combination of varnished MDF and decorative cork. They come in sets, simple or mix models. The mix model is very practical for a party because the glasses are not to be mistaken. The glass holders can be laser personalized, being fit for corporate gifts.

The last but not the list product we offer is the original port card Quince. The product has two large compartments made of rough MDF, ecological leather, cork and, as expected, magnets.

The GOOD is yet to come! Let us surprise you!
