Cali Bamboo offers indestructible bamboo floors and bamboo decking, as well as a new cork wall panel under a new company brand referred to as GreenClaimed — a reference to a material that’s been reimagined, revived, or recovered and then transformed into something new. In this case, the new Designer Cork Tiles are panels made with the bark of cork oak trees.
“Cork is harvested from the renewable bark of the cork oak tree … The outer bark is merely ‘trimmed’ and allowed to grow back, leaving the tree undamaged. A cork oak can live up to 200 years with harvesting occurring once every nine years, yielding about 20 harvests during a tree’s life,” according to a statement by Cali Bamboo.
Designer Cork Tiles are available in three styles Tundra (grayer and the most rustic of the three), Sierra (moderately rustic and has more brown tones) and Meadow (thinner layers of cork and hand-cut into a more geometric mosaic pattern). Depending on the style, these vary in thickness and are about 11.75″ x 23.75″ per tile.
