Mistura Watches – Eco-Friendly Sophistication
I love art festivals. Especially the great ones that happen all summer long, here in the Chicago area. And it’s especially satisfying when I stumble upon great artists, like watch designers Juan Felipe Barreneche and Damiel Schemel who design the unique Mistura watches. True harmony between Mother Nature and watch-making.
These timepieces are not only stylish, they also have a focus on ecological matters. The face of the Mistura watch is made from exotic woods from the South American tropics: Bamboo, Macana, Coconut skin, Carreto, Guayacan and Nazarene. The watch cases are made either of wood or of recycled materials (70% plastic, 27% aluminum, 3% paper). Watch straps are all leather with wood clasps.
The watches are unisex though a few models were designed with women in mind. See all designs on the Mistera website here, where you can also purchase.
Now your wrist can be green too. Who knew?
