    Effect of humidity on cork fabric?

    Hello fellow Bihners,

    I want to buy a little Swift in cork fabric for my sister. It will be used in a place which is very humid (40% to 95%, averaging 70%). Any thoughts on how the cork fabric will react to a humid climate?

    I can't speak for the cork fabric personally as I don't own any (yet) however cork is used in many wet conditions and lasts for years. Given Tom Bihn's reputation for quality, I would bet this material will stand up well to humidity.

    Here in very dry Colorado I worry more about it cracking than I would if I had some humidity.
