Laura Way

Founder of Votch - vegan watch company

Laura Way is the founder of Votch, the UK’s first cruelty-free watch company. Laura launched Votch in 2016 having suffered from an illness called Topical Steroid Withdrawal, a condition which saw her lose her skin. Having felt the pain of losing her own skin she vowed to never wear the skin of another being again. When she recovered and an old watch strap broke, finding a quality, vegan replacement was nigh impossible, and the idea for Votch was born! Votch is now stocked in 8 countries worldwide and 10% of profits are donated to our charity of the season.
