Why to buy: Vegan leather is increasingly in demand in fashion. Birch bark offers a perfect alternative, because the renewable material is completely natural, durable and comes very close to leather in feel. Weisswald watch straps made of this velvety-soft birch bark - harvested by hand from the Siberian taiga - are comfortable to wear and are also pH-skin neutral and antibacterial, which is an advantage for particularly sensitive skin types. Visually, Weisswald's minimalist watch straps are stylish eye-catchers: the light bark layer with the typical birch grain is a rather rare piece of jewelry and catches the eye in a pleasantly discreet way.
What we love: Preserving the Siberian craft with birch bark is the goal with which Anastasiya Koshcheeva started her own business three years ago. "We harvest birch bark once a year from living trees in the taiga. The bark regenerates over time and the forest remains healthy. This is very important to us," Anastasiya Koshcheeva explains. "The special properties of birch bark allow us to make watch straps that are as durable and long-lasting as conventional watch straps. They are even water- and dirt-repellent and can be easily cleaned with a little water if necessary."
