Plakton is a brand that cares for nature. Since 1995, cork has been the material that we use for the production of almost every product that we created since then on. We always have tried to make products that are comfortable, ergonomic and natural. That is our essence. The harvesting of the cork oak is an ancient process that can only (and should) be done by experts: the descortiçadores. Manual skill and a lot of experience is required to avoid damaging the tree.
“ In Plakton we have always chased comfort in everything we have made. Since the start, we wanted to make positive footwear. We discovered that Cork was an incredible natural material with comfortable properties that could help us achieve our goals. ”
“ We have built a very disciplined team that works incredibly efficiently. Through the years we have learned that comfort comes along with innovation and hard work. Those are standards that makes Plakton a high quality brand.”
“ Since 1995 we have grown constantly as a company. Since the start, we knew this could happened and that is why our financial potition has strengthened exponentially. In this sector it is really important to have a consolidated financial structure. ”
