How do you like these Zazzle cork coasters with Portuguese designs in it? I am glad Zazzle is presenting cork as a material. I wonder if it's Portuguese cork! Unfortunately, it's just a set of coasters. There are a lot of products made of cork that could get our designs printed. I am thinking of writing some posts about it. I have some. I like cork products a lot. I just don't have more cork products in the house more because it can be expensive. 

Portugal has many companies that work to produce cork products. And not just the traditional bottle cork stoppers anymore. Designers are creating incredible the most incredible products - shoes, clothes, jewels, bags, bowls, almost anything. Cork is so versatile.
