Cork harvesting is a sustainable process that has remained virtually unchanged for 3,000 years. Made from the bark of long-lived cork oak trees, cork is stripped from the trees every decade, a process that actually maintains the health of the trees and their surrounding ecosystem. Cork is extremely durable yet slightly porous, giving it the perfect balance for use in yoga blocks. Plus, cork’s natural texture provides traction, while the rounded edges create a comfortable surface for supported poses. And because cork is a completely natural fiber, there’s no off-gassing as there would be with chemically treated products. A favorite of eco-minded consumers, the Hugger Mugger block measures 9 by 5.5 by 3.5 inches (W x H x D).
