Pelcor Little Umbrella is made of something that might surprise you

Pelcor Little Umbrella
When you need to shield yourself from a rainy day, you’ll grab a raincoat or an umbrella. They’re both usually made out of the same kind of swishy material that are used for tents. While these work fine and well, wouldn’t it be kind of awesome to use tree bark as an umbrella instead?

The Pelcor Little Umbrella may look like an ordinary umbrella, but it’s not what you’d think. This is made out of ‘cork skin’, coming from the bark of Portuguese cork oak trees. Harvesting the bark does no damage to the tree as it will simply grow more. Cork is waterproof, lightweight, hypoallergenic, and environmentally friendly, so what’s not to love? Oh yea…the $215 price tag that comes with it. While this is an awesome idea, you’re going to need a lot of money to tote this accessory around.
