bkr founders Tal and Kate are friends who share the belief that beauty can change the world. They created bkr because they were intelligent, fashion-obsessed, cultured women who were drinking out of cheap, disposable plastic water bottles. It didn't compute, but they were addicted. They searched and couldn't find a reusable water bottle they loved. They wanted something clean, clear, effortless, luxurious and beautiful - that wasn't made of plastic or metal, didn't have a huge mouth, and didn't feel like camping equipment. Something they could become more attached to than plastic water bottles. From this the idea for the luxe little bkr was born.

 bkr is a statement against a disposable world, against transporting water between continents, and against the chemicals we ingest when we base our decisions on convenience. bkr is inspired by everything they love -- sky-high boots, parisian street chic, tokyo minimalism, the cool, the pretty, the calm, the bright, soft white sheets and everything sparkly, transparent and clean. But most of all by the belief that the objects in one's life should be beautiful, effortless and loved.
