At AYA. AFRICA we take our sweet time curating the products we sell and showcase. Corks superseded all our standards, pioneers in the shoe market, they are the first Cork Sneaker in RSA. Their products are basics with an edge, trendless but never boring. So if you are looking for the perfect casual sneaker, look no more and get your pair of Corks.
What we loved most about this brand was their unwavering commitment to the upliftment of South Africa’s local economy and their ethical and sustainable production. It is not common to find brands who put the planet first and who continiously turn to innovation to bring exciting solutions to excisting flawed markets.
Corks harvests the bark of the cork tree, with no damage to the tree, the bark regrows and can be harvested every 8 years. A truly sustainable process. They then convert the bark into a material used to produce high quality cork sneakers.
The launch of their Cork sneaker was an instant hit. So much so that the brand has already moved on to expand their collection to include Tote bags, Belts, and waist packs, all made from corks, an eco friendly, vegan, lightweight, water resistant and durable material.
