BEYOND THE BRACELET:
Thank you for supporting Create Hope Cuffs - did you know a portion of this sale goes to bring literacy to children around the world through Children's HopeChest. See, look at you being all GIVING & inspiring kids around the world to be the best they can be - SO MUCH MORE THAN A BRACELET, RIGHT?
*PUT A CORK IN IT:
Cork is one of the world's most incredible raw materials. Did you know cork (yes, your wine corks too) are harvested from cork oak tree bark? It's 100% Vegan & ECO-friendly!
The best cork comes from Portugal, where over one third of all Cork Oaks exist.
Cork oak trees are the ONLY trees who actually benefit from having the bark removed. Once harvested, the tree absorbs about 5 times the CO2, making harvesting an important process in reducing greenhouse gases. Amazingly, the same cork tree can be harvested every 3-8 years!
Once the cork is harvested, it goes through a rigorous process of being boiled, dried, and shaved into thin sheets, then sealed with a non-toxic sealant. It is now stain-resistant, water repellant, hypoallergenic, anti-microbal, supple and flame retardant... and ready to be worn!
Caring for your Create Hope CORK Cuff: As mentioned, our cork fabric is anti-microbial and water repellent. However, we recommend not submerging your new cork jewelry in water to keep the metals fresh & shiny. If your cork bracelet should become dirty, you can simply use a lightly damp cloth to clean it up! It is not recommended to use essential oils on your cork jewelry.
With frequent wear, the black stain within the lettering may fade. Want to give it a refresh? Simply use a black sharpie. Be sure to wipe off any excess quickly, but if the sharpie dries where you don’t want it, use a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol to remove the extra.
Aluminum will not tarnish & is considered food grade, without chemicals.
