BERG + BETTS

Fashion does not need to come at the cost of the environment. From the casual shopper to the trend following fashionista, what we wear has an impact on our world. By choosing sustainably made accessories that are stylish yet timeless, this form of conscious consumerism can change our world for the better. BERG+BETTS felt it was time for that change.

Jessie Atkins, the founder of BERG+BETTS, comes from a family of creatives and entrepreneurs which fueled her desire to enter the fashion space in an eco-friendly way. Jessie wanted to make sure there was a watch option for consumers to meet them wherever they were on their sustainability journey. Centered around a mission to salvage excess leather scraps that are otherwise bound for the landfill, BERG+BETTS offers thoughtfully-made, sustainably-forward timepieces.

BERG+BETTS leather watches are all designed and assembled in their Victoria, British Columbia studio. Their fashion-forward timepieces are made with 100% upcycled leather offcuts from textile factories around the world. They're also water-resistant and feature a stainless steel buckle for high quality.

A Sustainable Take on a Classic Timepiece

BERG+BETTS believes all styles should be sustainable and responsible. From their carefully selected materials to their manufacturing and labor practices, BERG+BETTS touches on social and environmental business ethics that make them a unique leader in the leather industry. The fashion industry is one of the most wasteful in the world, accounting for over 90 million tonnes of waste per year, often coming from discarded textile waste from the manufacturing process. When it comes to leather, scraps that are cut away from patterns are often thrown away. At BERG+BETTS, every watch is made with this surplus leather. The leather bits are collected from leather factories around the world that make everything from premium purses to car seats. This means that BERG+BETTS produce no textile waste themselves — amazing! An ethical supply chain beyond materials procurement is important to BERG+BETTS. Their watches are designed and assembled in Canada, while their watch parts are ethically crafted by their partner factory in Dongguan, near Hong Kong. All of BERG+BETTS's partnerships are carefully vetted for ethics and are all members of SEDEX. SEDEX is a non-profit organization that drives responsible practices within global supply chains which includes health and safety, compensation, and labor standards. That way, BERG+BETTS can rest assured all steps in their supply chain uphold the same values they hold for their studio in Canada. As ethical business leaders, they know that the slow fashion movement won't realize itself overnight and that they need to reflect the values they want other business leaders to uphold.
