Why We Started Compass Bracelet

Each day we wake up alive we have decided to make it our personal mission to make the world a better place. Compass Bracelet has given us the outlet to do that. It's an opportunity for us to make a difference in our own lives and many others as well. It also allows us to be a part of something that will continually do good. It's more than a bracelet, it's a reminder, even after the bracelet has left our wrists, to follow our hearts, take chances, find the simple beauties in each day and start a ripple of kindness that will touch more lives than we can imagine.

We figured that we could make an even bigger impact in the world…

For every bracelet sold 50% of the net profits are donated to the Dave Thomas Foundation. Each Compass Bracelet purchased helps a child find a forever home. Whether its awarding grants to adoption organizations that connect children with families or increasing awareness across the nation about waiting children and the process to adopt, the Dave Thomas Foundation is dedicated to finding permanent homes for children in foster care. Adopting or fostering a child is an amazing way to spread love and kindness around the world and make it a better place. So when you wear your bracelet and share your bracelet, know that you are helping to change children's lives around the world!

Cork Leather

Why We Use Cork Leather

Cork is nearly impermeable. So you don’t have to worry about it getting wet. We shower and surf in ours!

It’s one of the best eco-friendly and vegan materials out there.

The cork tree bark is harvested every 6-9 years and the tree is never cut down. The bark can be harvested approximately 33 times in the trees lifespan.

Cork = Comfort - It’s extremely lightweight and super soft.

Functional yet durable. It can withstand everyday wear and can go with you wherever your next adventure may be.

Cork is naturally anti-microbial, so it repels germs and bacteria.

A single bracelet will touch so many lives and when we all pull together who knows what incredible impacts it will have.  


Our Story

    The Compass Bracelet Idea Began

    July 24th, 2014, the idea for Compass Bracelet was conceived. The thought hit me in the shower while I was staying in an Airbnb on a work trip in LA. I called my family as I normally do with my crazy business ideas and they were all like..."This is it, this is the one". After hearing how pumped they were my sister and I began brainstorming how to bring Compass Bracelet to life!

    Started Building Our Website

    The idea of Compass Bracelet swirled around in my head for 2 years before we decided we had to go for it! Now or never and I knew I would never forgive myself if i didn't try.

    Our Website Went Live

    November 24th, 2016, exactly two years and 4 months later we opened for business and went live with our website. This was a super exciting and crazy time for us. We could not wait to get Compass Bracelets out into the world but we also quickly found bugs that had to be fixed. No pain no gain right!
