“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.” ― Rainer Maria Rilke
The lovely ladies of Bamboo Revolution contacted me earlier this year to do a Weekend Takeover for them on Instagram. I absolutely adore their exquisite wristwatches and I am delighted to launch their latest green strap petit (limited edition of 30 so fabulously exclusive) wristwatch for their Green Month in September. The watch faces are made from carbonated bamboo, with inherent characteristics, making each watch face unique and is paired with an African-inspired ostrich leather watchstrap. Each piece is hand-assembled and the handmade packaging is entirely recyclable. The Bamboo Revolution team strongly believe in and support the idea of creating a greener, more conscious and sustainable environment and for this reason they donate a percentage of their proceeds to planting trees in areas that are in need of reforestation or afforestation. Bamboo Revolution was born out of a humble student project at CPUT in 2012 and is a beautifully inspirational local brand that is sincerely worth supporting.
My talented friend Jenna Skead and I treated ourselves to a mid-week mini spa day on Wednesday and then headed back to my new apartment in Tamboerskloof to shoot some photographs in my backyard (a small hill called Lion’s Head maybe you know it?) for the portrait section of the Weekend Takeover.
Follow the Bamboo Revolution Instagram account to take a peek at my weekend escapades with my magnificent new eco-friendly wristwatch.
