About the designer
Originally born out of the University of Cape Town’s Postgraduate Entrepreneurship Programme in 2012, Bamboo Revolution is a South African business that first launched in August 2012.
Bamboo Revolution is one of the first watch companies to develop a watch face made from bamboo, with a vegetable tanned leather strap. "We aimed to create not just another wristwatch but a product and a brand that consumers would be proud to wear and support. We focus on creating unique products, using natural materials. Our deisgn mantra is ‘form follows function’ and our guiding principle, simplicity."
We are extremely passionate about the bamboo, for its natural beauty and its versatility. We are excited to share our simplistic, unisex Original Range with you!
We are committed to designing wristwatches that allow you to express your unique style and personality. For this reason we offer various colour leather straps, which come in two different strap variations.
We have chosen to donate a portion of our proceeds to a local greening initiative called 'Greenpop'. We aim to support local industry where possible and for this reason, our leather straps are handcrafted and assembled in Cape Town,South Africa.
