Votch watches are "Made in China" and they are proud of that. The cruelty-free watches are made in a fair trade factory that they have visited and with which they have good contact. All watches are 100% vegan and have the PETA-Approved certification. The watch bands are made of plastic and cotton instead of leather. Because this alternative to leather is not yet completely environmentally friendly, Votch is experimenting with sustainable materials such as Piñatex (Pineapple Leather). The metal used is free from harmful substances such as heavy metals, bromine, plasticides and PVC.
