Votch is a female-led, cruelty free watch company that’s based in the UK. Votch was founded by Laura, and she runs the company with Rolo, her re-homed (smaller than most rabbits) pooch. Votch began when a few years back when Laura was struck down with a condition called Topical Steroid Withdrawal, a condition that made her skin fall off. During the years that it took her to recover, she turned to documentaries and educated herself on various subjects regarding animal welfare, including facts about the leather industry that truly shocked her.
“Seeing the suffering that animals endured simply for fashion, and having felt the pain of losing my own skin, I vowed never to wear the skin of another being again”.
