Mind the Cork owner Jenny is what you might call a cork stan. She started her shop in 2013 to make the most of what she considers one of the world’s most underrated resources. “Cork is a brilliant material,” she says on her site. “Its harvest doesn’t require the trees to be cut down. It is also biodegradable, renewable, and recyclable — I think it’s pretty fantastic!” Even if you’re not yet a cork lover, her products — everything from wallets and planters to pencil cases and figurines — will turn you into one. All of her cork is sourced directly from harvesters in Portugal, and she creates the pieces in her London studio.
