It all started with the idea to replace plastic in everyday products with more sustainable material. Drawing from previous experience with manufacturing, Refork's founders spent several years looking for a solution and in 2018, they discovered a way how to bind wood flour to natural substances. Thus, the iconic Refork fork came into being. The overwhelmingly positive public response inspired them to mass-produce cutlery and a year later, in 2019, they founded Refork.
In order to achieve their mission, they established their own research & development facility in Prague, where they can make and test not just materials but also the final products. All locally, and in-house.
