When we exercise, microscopic tears occur within our muscles. This is healthy and expected, and it is in healing these tears that our muscles grow and develop. However, for healing to occur, we require the proper recovery routine – rest, diet and active muscle massage (self-myofasical release).
If muscles do not recover properly post-workout, scar tissue can develop within the muscle and result in tightness. In extreme cases, this scar tissue can grab hold of bone structure, causing significant pain and reduced performance. Shin splints are a common example.

Naturally anti-microbial and impermeable to liquid
Designed in Australia, made in China
Our cork rollers, cork yoga blocks and cork massage balls are designed to be seen. Simple, yet considered, they merge seamlessly with your aesthetic.
We are all about sustainable redesign and believe that sustainability and thoughtful design go hand-in-hand.
Cork provides a more effective massage than traditional foam rollers and props as it does not compress to the same extent and wears better over time.
The effectiveness of our products is backed by research conducted at RMIT University. While our cork rollers might feel slightly more intense than you're used to, they're far more effective at releasing those tight spots and helping your muscles recover. Enjoy that post-work out release!
better for the environment
As a naturally occurring material, cork is highly biodegradable. Our products are designed for a lifetime of sustainable recovery but when you've exhausted them, you can pop them in your compost pile.
Or, re-purpose your products - they make great additions to the garden as they are naturally impermeable to liquid!
In comparison, currently 95% products made out of PVC + EVA (like traditional foam rollers) end up in landfill in Australia.
the wwf named the harvesting of cork as one of the most sustainable agricultural practices in the world
Exercise recovery rollers and yoga props are traditionally made out of PVC plastic and EVA foam. Both PVC and EVA are derived from crude oil and are extremely difficult to recycle. Chances are, 99% of foam rollers end up in landfill.
Cork on the other hand is 100% natural and 100% biodegradable. The process of harvesting cork is in fact regenerative - stripped cork trees actually absorb 5 times more CO2!
The majority of the world's cork is grown in Portugal and is used for wine corks. Sadly, large volumes of wine corks are being replaced with plastic alternatives, significantly reducing the global demand for cork. There is a need for new products to utilise cork - that’s where we come in!
