trevz is a proudly South African brand born in Cape Town, South Africa. trevz Circle of GivingWe have a dream of creating a sustainable business model Our objectives are to use primarily eco-friendly/recycled materials, create jobs and give back a % of profits to a charity for vulnerable children in South Africa. We call this the trevz circle. Blog link http://ourjourney.trevz.com/the-journey-begins/

With that said, we also want our products to be trendy and something that people want and are proud of owning.

trevz hemp shoes and sunglassesAfter much research and trying out hemp as the material for shoes and caps, we have decided on bamboo and other wood as our eco-friendly material of choice. We have launched our bamboo sunglasses which are available online and currently busy with the next product.

Watches are one of my favourite accessories, largely unisex and people generally own multiple pairs of watches and only usually 1 pair of sunglasses which is why we decided to extend our range to include wooden watches. We designed a bamboo watch face that uses japanese watch movement and an option of strap/cuff types and colours. trevzBrownwatchThe leather strap is handstitched onto the watch face. We have made a few samples and would like to take this to production. 

We have built an online shop that is also mobile and tablet responsive which has received positive feedback. www.trevz.com This does now require some customisation, product enhancements and improvements in latency.

We currently use social media and markets as main channels for sales and marketing.We have gained over 2000 facebook likes with 500 people talking about our page. www.facebook.com/trevzonline

Our dream is to take our products global and allow people to shop online from anywhere in the world knowing that a % of this benefits vulnerable children in South AFrica whilst still being environmentally conscious and creating jobs.

 

Watch dimensions for cuff watch:

Strap length: 23.5cm
