DESIGNED FOR GOOD
Lilian and Fred, our co-founders, started AWAKE with a simple idea : Create high-quality, well-designed watches made from recycled materials.
Being both watch enthusiasts was the opportunity to start
with a product they love, but also an object that could become a sign of recognition for a community of people sharing the same sustainable values.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
It was mid-summer back in 2018 when we launched the first high quality, fully recycled and recyclable solar watch on Kickstarter. 18 months of preparations came together. Our initial goal was reached within 1 hour! We ended our campaign with 1300 watches ordered in a few weeks. The AWAKE story has started.
The 29 days that followed brought the total to $307,080. Pledged by 858 backers, our all-time heroes and founding members. The months after pre-orders kept on coming in on our IndieGoGo InDemand page and by the end of December we shipped out the first AWAKE watches.
KEEPING IT PERSONAL
Even as we grow, one thing that we've always wanted for AWAKE is to maintain the personal touch.
We don’t try to make AWAKE look like a big corporation. We are as transparent as possible. This is why we share a lot of the behind the scenes about how we design products and run AWAKE.
No matter how big AWAKE, we always want to be accessible to fans and customers. We absolutelty love connecting with people on Instagram, and Facebook. Follow us and let's be AWAKE together.
