The cork we use is the highest quality and finest grained cork we could find. Larger grained cork is visually way too busy—it stands out from the rest of our designs. For the black variant, we tested different stains and dyes until we could get the right richness of black, eventually settling on Japanese calligraphy ink, which we apply by hand. We’ve been learning and adapting our methods to optimize all the new processes in the shop.
