Who is exactly is JORD? JORD, a Norwegian word for "of the Earth," is a small, family owned company from St. Louis, Missouri who manufactures wood and stone watches, Apple band of various materials, eyewear, hats, and Natural Vegan handbags. They have customers in 140 countries, and they offer FREE worldwide shipping!
So, you might be thinking, sure JORD vegan leather wallets are versatile and stunning, but why did they choose cork? If you're like me, the cork you're most familiar with is the cork in the merlot you open at five on a Friday night to kick off the weekend. The cork used in these JORD sustainable wallets is the opposite of wine cork. This JORD Suberhide ™ Wallet (derived from suberin, meaning "naturally occurring substance"), is a unique fusion between Portuguese cork oak tree and woven fabrics. Portuguese cork is durable, stain-resistant, and also flame resistant. In fact, Portuguese cork is the same material that's used in space shuttle construction. If you do need to clean your JORD Suberhide wallet (my kids' sticky fingers are no match for NASA!) mild soap and water will easily remove any unwanted marks (should your child ask to borrow money while eating a strawberry smoothie, which may or not have happened recently.)
When I received my complimentary Eila black and gold Wallet from JORD, I was immediately impressed! My JORD Suberhide ™ Wallet arrived in a gorgeous black signature gift box with a stunning dark red bow. The wallet was enclosed in a protective dust bag, so it was in mint condition. As much as I liked the looks of the wallet, I appreciated it's functionality. My JORD wallet has 8 slots to hold my credit cards and a convenient pouch for holding change (which my kids appreciate when we pass a vending machine and I cave, so ultimately it's a win-win!)
What I love best about JORD Suberhide ™ Wallets is their fun and fashionable colors. The gold flecks in the Portuguese Cork really sparkle in the light. The smooth, gold YKK zipper on the side is extremely eye catching. The black and gold color combo goes well with my new formal black dress, as well as my gray and black causal outfits. Take a peek for yourself!
