Regaliz - Fashionable Leather Alternatives & Accessories

While Regaliz may be most well known for leather, especially "licorice" leather (regaliz is Spanish for licorice), we're excited to carry animal-friendly vegan leather alternatives from this in-demand brand. Regaliz has made available a variety of non-leather cord with the same focus on fashion and personalization. This eye for style is evident in their collection of Portuguese cork cord and corduroy rubber cord. Additionally, Regaliz has a diverse line of metal slider beads and findings, which can be used with other styles of cord—accent kumihimo braids , climbing rope , leather alternative cords , and more. Use the Regaliz Cord Cutter Tool for perfect cuts on your custom length cords.

Much like charm bracelets with European style large hole beads , Regaliz bracelets have a signature look that's seeing an ever increasing demand. Learn more about Regaliz products with instructional videos and project tutorials from our design team, and you'll be creating fashionable Regaliz bracelets in no time!

Regaliz Flat Portuguese Cork Cord and Components

Regaliz Flat Portuguese Cork Cord is available by the inch in both 5mm and 10mm widths, and its natural grain cork texture is soft and pliable. Customize your bracelet with a wide selection of Regaliz beads and findings—some components for the 10mm flat cord may also be used with two strands of the 5mm cord for a wrapped look. Regaliz flat cork cord is excellent for punching, stitching and riveting. Be sure to browse our TierraCast rivets, eyelets, links, and rivetable beads for riveting components to personalize your projects. Colorful rubber O-rings are another fun embellishment for Regaliz bracelets; use 7.25mm rings for 5mm flat cork cord, and 10mm rings for 10mm flat cork cord.

Regaliz Shaped Portuguese Cork Cord & Components

Four unique profiles and textures of Regaliz shaped cork cord beautifully showcase the natural texture of cork, and are available by the inch in up to 13 colors. The petite 5mm stitched round cord is made from smooth cork stitched around a rubber core. Braided round cord is available in two sizes, 6mm and 10mm, and is a delightful alternative to braided leather. These cords have a hollow rubber core and can be reinforced with memory wire to create bangles and cuffs that hold their shape. Our designers also love accenting them with colorful rubber O-rings. All three sizes of round cords have a selection of associated Regaliz slider beads and findings, but there are many more compatible findings on our website, including climbing rope findings and even some European style large hole beads; be sure to check the internal dimensions of other components and mix and match your cords and findings! Stitched mini cord has a unique, half-round profile and measures 10mm wide by 5mm thick. We recommend using Eurotool Super New Glue for securing cord ends and findings to all Regaliz cork cords.

Regaliz Corduroy Rubber Cord & Components

Regaliz Corduroy Rubber Cord offers an on-trend chunky licorice leather look. The cord has a soft flocked texture with uniform grooves. When viewed from a cut end, the cord is oval in shape, measuring 10mm x 6.5mm, and it is available by the inch. Use this fun cord to create a custom project with Regaliz ceramic beads, metal slider beads, O-rings, clasps and cord ends.
