Our cork comes from Southern Europe, specifically Portugal’s Alentejo region—also dubbed "Cork Country". The area is home to 500,000 inhabitants, many of whom work in groves where cork is sustainably harvested from trees that can live upwards of two centuries.
Spin City Mats uses commercial-grade sublimation printing.
Unlike other printing methods, such as screen or inkjet printing, sublimation printing does not use ink that sits on top of the surface, which can wear off on your records and fade over time. Instead, the dye is permanently embedded into the cork fibers, creating a fade-resistant solution that can withstand regular use.
