Laser engraved bezel with Mabboo's trademark 竹 meaning bamboo...obviously!
Bamboo watches are incredibly light and the bamboo used is 100% organically grown to make the most sustainable watch out there!

The idea behind Mabboo came to life in 2008 when Ed Cheney was in China trying to learn Mandarin. Whilst living in Qingdao, Ed stumbled across an article about a new eco fabric, bamboo!
He figured the bamboo was being grown in China and noticed a severe lack of companies trying to create fashionable eco-clothing both in China and back in the UK. Putting two and two together, Ed decided to create a new sustainable bamboo brand that draws on contemporary Chinese influences and so the Bristol brand Mabboo was born.
The Chinese character in the Mabboo logo is pronounced ‘zhu’ and means bamboo. If you look closely you can make out a silhouette for the ‘M’ of Mabboo.
