Zgodba o pluti

Gričevnata pokrajina je bila zlato obarvana. Vožnja je bila meditacija v gibanju, na neskončnih travnikih posušene trave so se razprostirali plutovci. Nekateri so bili »goli«, saj so njihovo lubje pred kratkim odstranili, drugi imajo napisano številko, ki označuje kdaj bo lubje zopet zrelo. Lubje brez da bi drevesu škodovali možno odstraniti vsakih 9 let, vendar mora biti drevo staro najmanj 25 let.

Življenjska doba dreves je 200-300 let, zato je jasno, da se na tem območju s pridelavo plute ukvarjajo že nekaj generacij. Plutovci v manjšem obsegu rastejo tudi v drugih sredozemskih državah, vendar sta Portugalska in Španija glavni tako v količini kot kakovosti plute. Ta je okolju izjemno prijazen material, pa tudi široko uporabna.

V podjetju Flaška jo v kolekciji Cork uporabljamo tako za zamaške kot za zaščitne nogavičke z različnimi motivi.

Z Luisom sva se odpravila na obisk k našemu dobavitelju vrhunskih nogavičk iz plute, rokodelcu Miguelu Pachecu iz vasi San Vicente de Alcantara. Kraj leži na zahodu Španije, v bližini meje s Portugalsko. Pred vasjo sva se ustavila v lokalnem podjetju za predelavo lubja plutovca. Delavci so se ravno odpravljali na kosilo, šef pa naju je prijazno popeljal skozi proizvodnjo. Lubje po obiranju najprej prekuhajo v vodi, nato pa zložijo v posebne skladovnice. Kakovostno sortiranje opravi kupec, iz boljših kosov se izdelujejo zamaški, slabše pa zmeljejo za npr. talne in stenske obloge v hišah.

Skozi ozke ulice vasice sva se med belo obarvanimi hišami prebila do Miguelove delavnice. Zelo je bil vesel najinega obiska, saj s svojimi naročili prispevamo k preživetju dveh družin. Najprej smo si ogledali manjšo prodajalno, v kateri je bil razstavljen cel kup izdelkov - od umetelnih ur in ptičjih hišic do ženskih torbic ter denarnic.

Miguel Pacheco se z obrtjo ukvarja 20 let. O pluti nama je Miguel in Makspripovedoval s posebnim zanosom, pa tudi nekoliko otožno. V njihovi vasi je 6.000 ljudi, ki so prej vsi živeli od plute. Po prehodu v novo tisočletje je njihova panoga doživela veliko krizo in od 70 malih vaških podjetij jih je ostalo zgolj še nekaj. Vinarska industrija je množično prešla na aluminijaste ali plastične zamaške oziroma vino celo polnijo v tetrapak embalažo. O negativnem vplivu na okolje se v vinarski industriji ne govori, le nekaj navdušencev poudarja, da plutovinasti zamašek pozitivno vpliva na okus vina.

Iz prodajalne smo se odpravili v delavnico, kjer je Maria ravno šivala nogavičko za Flaško. Ko sem jo opazoval pri njenem delu, mi je hitro postalo jasno, da bom sedaj prav na vsako nogavičko gledal z občudovanjem. Velika količina vloženega ročnega dela je nadgrajena z natančnostjo, saj se vsaka nogavička odlično prilega Flaški. Oblekica ima 5 sestavnih delov, ki jih je potrebno najprej natančno odrezati, nato pa kakovostno zašiti. O kakovosti materiala, kot tudi samega postopka šivanja, priča dejstvo, da za nogavičke Cork ne dobivamo nobenih reklamacijskih zahtevkov.

Gotove plutovinaste nogavičke s hitro pošto pridejo v naše podjetje, kjer v njih vgraviramo različne motive. Prvi motiv je bil Roža življenja, ki je hitro postal zelo priljubljen. Kmalu smo v kolekcijo dodali še motiv Nov začetek, letos pa še Flaško Emoto Peace Project z motivom kristala »Ljubezen in hvaležnost«. 

Zaradi visoke sporočilne in praktične vrednosti je Flaška Cork vedno bolj priljubljena tudi v segmentu personaliziranih Flašk.
