Kochiba is a wooden watch brand with a heart of gold. Set up in Glasgow in 2015, the independent label was established by husband and wife duo Niraj and Victoria. With a passion for clean, minimalist design, Kochiba was named after a Japanese wood and was launched to resounding success. It wasn't just the design people have been going crazy for though. A portion of the profits from the sale of every watch goes to global charity WomanKind.
Niraj always wanted social enterprise to be part of his business with his wife. Growing up, he saw woman deprived of education and domestic violence a prevalent issue. When setting up Kochiba, they wanted to help in any small way to support women on a global scale.
With watches starting at £100, these stylish pocket-friendly designs are one more way you can wear your heart (and style) on your sleeve.
