I was one of the guys who shot cork flooring for HGTV. (Ok, actually I was doing the SOUND)

The cork flooring is great. Soft, warm on your feet, etc. Looks really nice. Quiet too!

The wine industry has been switching to fancy rubber/plastic corks partly because of cost and availability.

Cork flooring can be made from smaller pieces of cork, sort of ground up and recycled from the wine cork industry. It is recyclable and sustainable.

Cork is actually bark. It is cut off the tree and then grows back later. This can be done every six to nine years.

It's neat stuff.
