Cork fabric @ Branch

Branch has started selling these soft cork bowls made from cork fabric. Since I haven’t seen one in person, I’ll let them tell you more:
This is one of those products that amazes those who see and feel it. Since you can't do that online, we'll do our best to describe it: it's smooth, warm, and pliable – almost leather-like – though it's made entirely from cork.

Specifically, this bowl is made from two layers of cork sewn together. This gives it an uncanny structural integrity, allowing the form to hold its shape, the sides to be folded over, and even withstand regular machine washing.
And pretty, to boot.
