Luxury eco accessories brand, Watson & Wolfe, is currently seeking £200,000 in seed funding to support its mission of becoming a global leader in accessories for eco-conscious, vegan, and sustainability-focused consumers. The brand is dedicated to using next-generation materials in a carbon-efficient and ethical supply chain. To achieve its ambitious goals, Watson & Wolfe plans to release more products, expand its sales channels, grow its team, and scale up its marketing efforts.

Despite the challenges posed by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Watson & Wolfe has seen continued growth across all channels. The brand expects to more than double its business revenues from last year, thanks to increased marketing and awareness, as well as the growing consumer demand for ethically made, low-impact accessories.

Watson & Wolfe, which was launched in 2018, prides itself on being the first British brand to offer luxurious vegan accessories for men. Its range includes wallets, card holders, belts, and travel accessories. In response to high demand, the brand introduced handbags and purses to its collection last year, receiving an overwhelmingly positive response.

The core range of Watson & Wolfe products is made using an innovative corn-based material derived from renewable sources. Additionally, the brand utilizes rPET linings made from post-consumer plastic bottles. By repurposing over 16,000 plastic bottles to date, Watson & Wolfe demonstrates its commitment to sustainability and continues to explore new materials such as Cactus leather for future product launches.

Helen Farr-Leander, the founder and director of Watson & Wolfe, brings extensive industry experience to the brand, having played a key role in the growth of Aspinal of London. Farr-Leander recognizes the significant opportunities in the vegan leather industry, which is projected to be worth $89.6 billion by 2025. As more consumers become aware of the environmental damage associated with traditional leather production, the demand for sustainable and cruelty-free alternatives continues to grow. Watson & Wolfe aims to capitalize on this trend and make a meaningful impact in the industry.
