What’s the time?

It’s bamboo o’clock!   I’ve recently come across these great unisex watches.  The watch dial is made of bamboo, while the strap is 100 % leather. As a result, this stylish timepiece has a very natural look.

Bamboo Revolution uses a Japanese Miyota Quartz and long life batteries.  As a socially aware company, for every watch sold, R10 is donated to Project Rhino KZN.

Bamboo is a grass which grows naturally and rapidly in the wild.  Through its growth, it maintains carbon dioxide absorbent properties.   The leather straps,  available in a variety of colours, are hand-crafted and assembled at a local factory in Cape Town.

Bamboo Revolution is extremely passionate about this eco and ethical product and I hope you’ll remember them next time you’re looking for a new watch.
