Jason Hyde are disrupting the accessory industry by saying goodbye to harmful materials and welcoming the new era of eco-friendly components.
The company started in Miami in 2018 to introduce time in a sustainable fashion. Their watch collection proved that an elegant and affordable time-piece, can also be dangerously sustainable.
They have partnered with the best in the business to use recycled materials, such as plastic water bottles, paper, cork, and biodegradable wool while maintaining a high standard of quality in their products. Many more eco-friendly materials are yet to come. But they do not only recycle; they have managed to use the world’s waste and have transformed it into fashionable brand-new models. In their own words – ”We upcycle every minute!”
