LIAN & MÉZ: Sustainable Handmade Watches meet Pineapples

We are a new and ambitious watch label from Germany and our vision is to bring a sustainable change to the watch industry. How? - By combining German craftsmanship and the innovative material Piñatex, made from pineapple leaf fibers.

 

 

LIAN & MÉZ is not just a brand name, it is an ethical statement within the fashion industry against animal violence, pollution and other harm to the environment.

Respect, responsibility and passion brought us together to create eco-conscious, sophisticated and high-quality watches. 

Our first collection ''Fifth Season - Season of sustainability'' sums up our brand values and ethics by offering stylish wristwatches produced in responsible and sustainable way in every step of our supply chain and watch production.

 

 

 

 

We believe in fair trade and natural materials. All our straps are handmade in Germany from the innovative material called Piñatex™. This material is made from pineapple leaf fibers.

Piñatex embraces advanced technologies to create a totally sustainable, high-performance, natural textile.

Piñatex fibers are the by-product of the pineapple harvest and no extra land, water, fertilizers or pesticides are required to produce them. Piñatex is PETA-Approved VEGAN.

Developed in the Philippines, today Piñatex production provides a new additional income for farmers while creating new industry for pineapple growing countries.

 

 

Our straps from Piñatex comes in 5 different colors: charcoal (black), natural, gold, brown and silver.  

 

 

We believe in precise engineering, so in order to ensure premium quality at the heart of every watch, we are working together with a leading German watch manufacturer.  

Every single watch of the „Fifth Season“ collection is tested, quality assured and assembled by professionals in Germany. 

German craftsmanship and its long-standing reputation for being a country of excellent engineering with high-quality standards in the watch industry ensures us in delivering reliable and durable watches to you. 

All our watches purchased through this campaign will come with a two year warranty.

The straps are easy to change and remove, you can switch them with a snap.

''Last time I wore a watch was exactly three years ago. I then went vegan and gave up on all non-sustainable products. It feels great to find an option that is not only eco-friendly, but also very fashionable. Something I can wear every day. Guilt-free!'' 

Valeria, Conscious and Eco-Travel Blogger, Miami 

''LIAN & MEZ have created a beautiful and inspiring product that is both earth friendly and timeless. Using Piñatex, a vegan material made from pineapple leaf fibers that has both - the feel and look of leather was an exceptional and sophisticated choice. This vegan alternative to the widely used leather straps doesn’t detract from the watch, on the contrary, it transforms it into a meaningful and wholesome piece." 

Nataly, Sustainable Fashion Blogger, London 

For nearly 2 years we have been working on our vision to ensure that every step of our supply chain delivers high quality watches with the lowest possible impact to the environment.

Risks and challenges

We are beginners on Kickstarter, but we and our manufacturing partners have years of experience in the industry. We are aware our project is complex and that there are always unforeseen issues, but we have anticipated and planned for potential risks and have built a rock-solid production and delivery plan.

Firstly, our production is quite advanced and you can be very confident about our capacity to provide high-quality products on time. We spent over 2 years designing, developing, and receiving finalized samples.

Secondly, we have very skillful and professional suppliers and do not anticipate delays to our timeline. However, if by chance anything unexpected happens, we promise to keep you informed, both during the campaign and afterwards.

Thanks for all the support! We are excited to take this step with you, the Kickstarter community!
