Are all your bands interchangeable with both original TIVC and Kaizen watches?
Yes, all our bands and watches are interchangeable.
Are our watches and our leather ethically made?
The factory where our watches are currently being manufactured is only a small factory that has an IS9000 standard which has been running for five or so years.
The factory currently employs approximately 150 staff members. It's run very well and the workers are all treated fairly.
Our leather comes from a separate manufacturer who has met an IS9001 standard and have agreed to meet our standards of being ethically produced.
That means it is no danger to the environment and the people producing it.
Our leather production meets the requests of not including any and all 168 (soon to grow to a list of 400) substances on the candidate list of SVHC for authorisation, published by the European Chemicals Agency regarding related regulation concerning the REACH. This means SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern) lists substances used in production which fall under the criteria of being a class 1 or 2 carcinogen, mutagen or toxin for reproduction or if there is evidence that the substance has an equivalent degree of concern.
We are by no means perfect as there is always room for improvement but we are continually striving to find ways to have our products produced in an ethical and environmentally friendly manner from start to finish.
What is Pinatex?
Pinatex is a natural, innovative and patented new material made from pineapple leaf fibers gathered by partner farming cooperatives in the Philippines. Pinatex fibers are the by-product of the pineapple harvest. No extra land, water, fertilizer or pesticides are required to produce them.
How do I look after my Pinatex leather band?
To keep you Pinatex product in top condition we recommend that you wax it regularly using a natural wax which can be found on our online store. Follow the instructions carefully on the product you purchase.
We also recommend using Liquidproof Protector, a natural non toxic coating that will make the product water and stain repellent.
