Cork Taper Cutting Board
Cork cutting boards? Wait, you say. You didn’t even know cutting boards could be made from cork? Believe it or not, they can. We’ve put a lot of time and effort into creating beautiful, scratch-resistant products that cushion knives and refrain from dulling them. Our boards are handcrafted, beautiful, thin and lightweight, amounting to the perfect surface for chopping or serving. Plus, they are naturally hypoallergenic, antimicrobial and antifungal, which makes them a superior choice for everyday use.
Our elegantly tapered boards are available in a variety of sizes, and also make an ideal surface. Due to the small pieces of sustainably harvested cork from which the boards are made, these boards also have an unusual facade, providing a conversation piece as well as a functional cutting surface.
We harvest from trees in China rather than the more commonly used trees in Portugal. Because cork trees live over 100 years and can be harvested every 10 to 12, each tree provides a great deal of gorgeous, sustainable cork for products such as these.
Chop food, not trees, we always say. Cork cutting boards let you do just that.

We experimented with cork as a cutting surface for nearly a year before bringing it to market. We were able to source cork from the north of China. The trees and the bark is thinner.
Some background on our cork: It is sustainably harvested without harming the tree in northern China (People are always surprised to learn that cork grows in China). The outer bark quickly regenerates and the tree continues to flourish, generally improving the tree’s health and vitality over its lifespan. We use high densitiy compression to make our cork boards extra tough. Once people try cutting on cork, they are often pleasantly surprised.
