We've discovered StyleForum a few months ago and it’s a wonderful community to better understand your experiences and opinions about sustainable fashion accessories.
I am Clément, the founder of KOPPO, a French sustainable fashion brand that aims to manufacture high quality products with a timeless design, that both respect the planet and traditional craftsmanship.
I launched KOPPO because of a simple analysis :
Why should we accept that manufacturing is gone to Asia ?
Why should we embrace the era of disposability ?
For three years, aside of my job for a Swiss watchmaker, I thought about these questions and I worked hard to build a solution: KOPPO. Our first products collection will be timepieces, handmade by French and Swiss artisans.
What KOPPO's timepieces are about :
- Timeless design, in collaboration with Swiss based designers
- Dial : uniquely made out of wood using marquetry techniques. Made in France by an exceptional artisan.
- Straps : vegetable-tanned leather straps handmade in France
- Swiss quartz movement
- Assembled by a French watchmaker
- Warranty : 10 years
Here are some pictures of our watches collections:
The veneers used are : Smoked Spruce, Oak, Ash, Larch and Maple.
Our kickstarter campaign has launched on November, 2nd and we’ve reached our goal in less than two hours. You can pre-order here : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1503994656/luxury-watches-with-wood-marquetry-dial?ref=enitva
We’d love to hear your feedback ! Don’t hesitate to ask question, it will be a pleasure to exchange with you.
Thank you !
PS : KOPPO means small piece of material in French.
