BERG+BETTS crafts every watch out of surplus leather off cuts that would otherwise go to waste. We are talking about small pieces of new leather that fall to the floor as a shoe or purse maker cuts out their pattern. Since watch straps require such a small amount of material, we are able to collect scraps of designer leather from factories around the world and transform still new "waste" into fashion forward timepieces. Instead of producing textile waste, we utilize it!
The fashion industry is one of the largest waste producers in the world so you can rest assured that each purchase of a BERG+BETTS timepiece is you doing your part as a responsible consumer.
