Bamboo and Cork Watch
The high-quality natural cork used to make this cork watch was hand-harvested from trees that are only harvested every nine years, and then was stacked to dry and transported to the manufacturing factory. The cork was then steamed in water and flattened, and the cork that was not used for wine bottles was compressed into a thick cork fabric roll.
The cork used to make this cork watch was cut from a thin slice of this thick cork fabric roll. It may just look like a simple band of cork, but an unimaginable amount of time and positive energy has gone into this handcrafted watch.
This watch from Bobo Bird brings together beautiful natural cork and bamboo. It features a cork strap, and uses hand-carved bamboo for the frame and interior of the face of the watch.
