      If you read my article, it says “Although NOT ALL of Instrmnt minimalist watches are vegan, their beautiful K-series watches feature an Italian vegan rubber strap.” If you wish to only support and buy from 100% vegan brands, then I have listed 6 other completely vegan watch companies in this list.

    A Votch rep said their straps have a backing which is glued on. Glue = not vegan! I checked with PETA on that so I’m not sure how they got Peta vegan certified.

      Hi Danielle,
      Some glue is considered vegan but I’ll reach out to Votch to inquire if they can confirm if the glue they use doesn’t contain any animal-derived components. I also don’t think PETA verifies if the glue used in products are vegan before they certify brands as being “vegan”, their certification process is a simple online questionnaire where companies just fill it out and then get approved.

      Thanks for the feedback. I’ll look into this and report back if I hear anything =)

        Hi there! Do you happen to know what CPTN’s vegan leather is made of? A lot of vegan leather is made of various polyurethanes. I am looking for something both eco- and wallet-conscious. Some vegan leathers are cork or kelp-based though. Is this one of them?

          Hey Briana,
          I’m not sure what the exact materials the CPTN vegan watch straps are made out of but it’s some sort of polyurethane.

          For more eco-friendly watch straps..

          VOTCH (USD$228) – has a pineapple leather vegan strap but those watches start at $228, they also claim that their VEGAN LEATHER “strap materials are free from PVC, heavy metals, flame retardants and have no added antimicrobial chemicals. They are produced with low VOC emissions and also incorporate recycled and renewable content.”

          AUBRY WATCHES (USD$119) – they have a collection of MESH watch straps which are made out of stainless steel https://www.aubrywatches.com/collections/classic-mesh (If interested, use code: ‘ethicalelephant’ to receive a free watch strap with purchase)

          TIVC (USD$130) – they have straps made out of pineapple leather as well and also a collection of ECO-SUEDE bands that they claim “it’s production process is similar to that used for paper recycling, in which no harmful chemical substances are used. The recycled polyester contained in the eco suede material derives from polyester fibres (T-shirts, fibres, etc.) and PET (bottles, plastic, etc.)”

          and TIVC also claims their VEGAN LEATHER watch straps are “made up of different microfibre bundles as well as raw and recycled materials. They are eco friendly towards the environment as well as the people who create the leather. There are also no nasty chemicals involved in the process of manufacturing our band”
