The Kayu 'EARTH MMXV' Bamboo Wristwatch. Is a Stylish and Suave take on 2015 style. The design stems from merging a lifestyle of fun from the beach, sun, sand and ocean with an everyday sophistication and business style.

We need your help to get this project up and running, with the support of amazing people like you, we can have these truly amazing and unique timepieces out into the world as soon as possible! So lets do this!
What is the Kayu 'EARTH MMVX' Bamboo Wristwatch?
The Kayu 'EARTH MMXV' watch comes in two sizes, a Men's Large and a Unisex Medium and is a hand made durable & long lasting timepiece made with Genuine High Quality Soft Leather for your everyday wear and Renewably sourced Bamboo, a material that we here at Kayu are well aquatinted with, from our first two styles of sunglasses, the 'Uno' and 'Sol' range. These feature renewably sourced bamboo from the Zhejiang Mountain in China, the place our bamboo for the Kayu Earth Watch is from. You can see our current sunglass models here at our website:
We chose to work with bamboo as our primary wood as it is an environmentally friendly, massively available and very renewable type of wood. Bamboo’s environmental benefits come largely from its ability to grow and spread quickly, without the need of chemicals or very much water. A bamboo grove tends to release around 35% more oxygen into the air than a similar sized area of trees, and matures within seven years as compared to 30 to 50 years for most other types of tree, also helping to improve soil conditions and prevent erosion. Bamboo is so fast growing that it can yield 20 times more timber than most other trees on a similar sized area. There are over 1,000 different species of bamboo growing in very diverse climates throughout the world and it is because of those factors that we chose bamboo. Although, we are always looking at working with other timbers for future projects, bamboo stands strong in our minds as a clear winner.
The name and design come from the simple elegance of blending a love nature and the beach with an everyday business and classic style. We chose to name our first watch 'EARTH' as it a word that encompasses both and evokes an emotion of a love of nature and of the human world. MMXV (Roman numerals for the year 2015) celebrates the year in which we will be launching the watch and the year this model came to fruition.
Each watch comes to your door in a unique Kayu Earth bamboo case. This will protect your watch in its journey to your door, and be a keep safe for when you aren't using the watch!
Unisex / Small: Features a Black outer ring and Black watch hands.
Mens: Features a Silver outer ring and Silver watch hands.

We feel that one of the most important factors of any project is to create a sense of community and there is no better way to achieve that than to band together and help where help is needed. And so we have teamed up with Seva Foundation, a non-profit organisation based around restoring sight to some of the most vulnerable people in the world. And so we will be donating $1 AUD for every 'Kayu 'EARTH MMVX' Watch' sold to the Seva Foundation to help that amazing cause. If you want to find out a bit more information on 'SEVA' or would like to donate directly, please go to: www.seva.org
Thank You All!

Risks and challenges
The most prominent risks and challenges that we are facing at this time are marketing our product and getting the word out there. We have secured strong relationships with our individual material suppliers and have backups if things fall through, we have taken steps to ensure that we can and will deliver on time and deliver exactly what is expected. At this stage, we need any and all the help we can from the Kickstarter community to help us get our 'Kayu 'EARTH MMVX' Watch'off the ground and up and running! We can do this guys, we just need your help!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
