The Cork Bark Pencil Holder should bring a little bit of nature back to your cold corporate plastic electronic cubicle space. I can't be the only one who's sick and tired of everything being made from plastic. Is this the only material available on this planet? That's why I'm really warming up to cork, it's different, it's plentiful and you can stick things to it. Well, this rugged pencil holder / desktop receptacle is made from the natural curling bark that is peeled from the branches of cork trees in the Alentejo region of Portugal. It's perfect for holding all your plastic pens and other asorted desktop plastic knick knacks.
