About the author:
Tiago Cartageno is the Co-Founder of CorkWay. With over 15 years of experience in the fields of Design and 7 years as the CEO of CorkWay Tiago gained an huge amount of experience about how cork is produced and transformed to make beautiful and eco-friendly products, that can make the difference in the world we live in. With all these years curating the best Designers working with cork to be part of the CorkWay project, Tiago accumulated a lot of interesting information about the challenges of producing objects made with cork. Because there was no other book in the market talking about this subject, Tiago felt it was important to publish this important knowledge. Cork is a very important part of the Portuguese culture. Portugal alone is responsible for more than half of all the cork production in the world. Because Tiago is from Portugal he could easily moved inside the cork industry and to have access to this important information revealed in this book. Indeed a wonderful work.
