At BERG+BETTS we believe that you shouldn't have to sacrifice style for sustainability and it is our mission to provide you with eco-friendly products that are sophisticated, responsible, and affordable.
Our commitment to sustainability.
BERG+BETTS crafts every watch out of surplus leather off cuts that would otherwise go to waste. We are talking about small pieces of new leather that fall to the floor as a shoe or purse maker cuts out their pattern. Since watch straps require such a small amount of material, we are able to collect scraps of designer leather from factories around the world and transform still new "waste" into fashion forward timepieces. Instead of producing textile waste, we utilize it! The fashion industry is one of the largest waste producers in the world so you can rest assured that each purchase of a BERG+BETTS timepiece is you doing your part as a responsible consumer.
Our commitment to ethical manufacturing.
At BERG+BETTS we believe in transparent supply chains and we take the working conditions of our suppliers very seriously. All of our watches are assembled and designed by our team here in Canada and our watch parts are ethically crafted in the city of Dongguan, about 75km from Hong Kong.
Our suppliers were carefully chosen and are members of Sedex, a not for profit organization dedicated to driving improvements in responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains. They are regularly audited on labour standards, health and safety, environment, compensation and business ethics to ensure a happy, healthy workplace.
We are a proud Canadian business founded by Jessie Atkins, a mom and wife with Scandinavian roots, a love for simplicity and a keen eye for innovative design.
