Cork Baseball Hat by Queork
So this handsome dude decided to help me with this post – welcome Anthony! This is a very rare occurrence…
He is wearing a cork baseball hat by Queork. Yes, you read that right – this hat is made out of cork. You can tell when you feel it – difficult to describe but it feels like cork. What is so special about a cork baseball hat?
For starters it is water resistant, stain resistant, and anti-microbial. For us these features are critical. We own 4 horses and board at a facility with almost 80 horses. That means we are outside in every type of weather you can imagine – rain, sleet, wind, snow, thunder, lightning and more. The horses need us. Water resistant is helpful – for example tonight it is pouring like crazy. We are supposed to get 3-5 inches of rain overnight tonight with very high winds. When it was time to bring the horses in we wanted to at least keep our head dry.
Of course stains tend to be a way of life at the barn. We don’t stain something every day but it is of course inevitable, though we do try not to end up full of stains all the time.
How does cork become a fabric? Cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree which then regrows making cork one of the most sustainable products in the world. The fabric is made by taking layers of cork and sealing it to a cotton fabric using silicone which is water and stain resistant and extremely durable.
And anti-microbial – well let’s just keep the germs where they are! This hat is made from high quality upholstery grade cork sourced from the cork orchards of Portugal. Cork is an extremely durable, vegan alternative to leather and is naturally water resistant, stain resistant, anti-microbial, and scratch resistant. This hat will last you for years to come with minimal care.
The design I received is called Roots but there is also a Natural design for the cork baseball hat.
Queork has many other products too such as: Shoes, backpacks, jewelry, wallets, purses, dog leashes, aprons, bow ties, football, watch, belts, koozies and so much more. You can even buy the cork fabric!
