Bamboo Revolution, originally born out of UCT's postgraduate program, prides itself as a world brand present in 10 countries.

Bamboo Revolution is a South African business that designs and manufactures unique wrist watches made from natural materials.

Its watches are high-quality, made to fit any occasion or outfit.

Owner Amy De Castro says the business was established out of UCT's postgraduate entrepreneurship program and was first launched in 2012.

Bamboo Revolution is all about lifestyle, adventure, getting out to nature - just really getting back to basics and simple living.

Amy De Castro, Bamboo Revolution

So our wrist watch is more of a statement piece that people can wear that says a lot about their lifestyle and personality.

Amy De Castro, Bamboo Revolution

It is minimalistic and unassuming, designed for anyone (unisex), although we are looking at expanding into different ranges now...

Amy De Castro, Bamboo Revolution

This company has grown in leaps and bounds, operating in 10 different countries.

We really see our market as a global market which is really exciting.

Amy De Castro, Bamboo Revolution
