Custom and stock trivets are made from cork. Cork is composed of a hydrophobic substance, and because of its impermeable, buoyant, elastic, and fire retardant properties makes an amazingly effective hot pad. Once the trees are about 25 years old the cork is traditionally stripped from the trunks every nine years. The trees live for about 300 years. Cork production is generally considered sustainable due to the fact that the cork tree is not cut down to obtain the material; only the bark is stripped to harvest the cork and the tree continues to live and grow.
