About Queork: Queork was born when founders Amanda and Julie traveled from their homes in New Orleans to Julie's country of heritage, Portugal. There they encountered and became enamored with one of Portugal's greatest natural resources, cork. Since then, Queork has developed a unique line of handbags and fashion accessories made from genuine cork fabric. These products have the durability and design appeal of leather, yet are resistant to water, fading, fire and stain damage.
