JORD: Sustainable Watches
I get so excited when I can share a new brand with you that is innovative AND sustainable in design. JORD wooden watches are surprisingly supple and comfortable to wear. Each design is modern and provides just enough character to be different than anything else out there. They have three core values that prove they #doitbetter as a brand.
- JORD uses wood that comes from furniture remnants that would have otherwise been thrown away. They are able to eliminate waste by using these small pieces for each individual link and box.
Maple and Bamboo are sourced completely sustainably.
Every single piece of Koa comes from damaged trees that were brought down by natural weather events.
On their site you can shop by material and read more on the source, texture and sustainability of each wood used.
Rest assured that your watch has been made by people that are treated well.
JORD promises that all of their workers are trained well, treated fairly and paid properly.
Each watch is treated with natural substances, which creates a safer environment for their workers.
Yes a watch counts as something that you put on your body and sits on your skin for hours on end. It is important to know what the wood is being treated with.
All JORD watches are treated without toxic chemicals and with natural substances.
The watches are conditioned with natural tung oil, which comes straight from the Tung tree.
This is good for the environment and you!
I am wearing the Frankie watch in Dark Sandalwood and Emerald. I fell in love with the emerald green and immediately could see how it would fit in my everyday style. The minimalist, gold detail of the face makes it easy to mix and match with your favorite accessories. This Dark Sandalwood is sourced from Mozambique and is certified as a non-threatened wood.
