In order to raise awareness about important environmental topics, BAUME is innovating with materials that are new to watchmaking. The brand selects materials for their low environmental footprint, demonstrating that sustainable can be desirable and synonymous with quality, too. Material options for watch straps include cork, recycled PET, cotton, linen and Alcantara.
To further fulfil its mission of designing mindfully for a better tomorrow, BAUME is committed to working with NGOs such as Waste Free Oceans. Waste Free Oceans builds partnerships with local communities and fishermen to ensure that waste is collected from oceans, rivers and beaches. In turn, the ocean plastic is transformed into fabrics that enable Baume to create a modern, recycled, and recyclable product – all while helping them to do their part in cleaning the oceans, one watch at a time.
