At Original Grain, every timepiece is born with a backstory. Here’s ours.
Inspired by their Pacific Northwest roots - and trusting their instincts to trailblaze - brothers Ryan and Andrew Beltran set forth on a mission in 2013: Create an entirely unique timepiece out of wood and steel.
The seamless fusion of all-natural, sustainable hardwoods and stainless steel proved to be an instant and enduring smash, both on Kickstarter and in the wild, but it was the bold stroke to use reclaimed wood - wood with a story - that redefined what one should expect from a watch.
All of the wood Original Grain builds with is either reclaimed or FSC-certified. That means it has the blessing of the Forest Stewardship Council, an independent, non-profit organization that exists to protect forests for future generations. We pride ourselves on being good stewards of the environment. That means strategically designing each timepiece to use a minimum amount of wood to its maximum effect—not one grain is wasted. It also means actively partnering with Trees for the Future in Senegal, proudly planting a new tree for every watch sold.
