Sparkl Bands, which is a C-corporation, meaning they give more to charity than profit, started in founder Courtney Bonzi’s garage in 2017 and has since grown to more than 40 employees, their own studio space in San Luis Obispo, Calif. and bands sold in 179 countries across the globe. Sparkl Bands are committed to their environmentally-friendly upcycled product, taking luxury goods like Louis Vuitton and Gucci apart and using the leather to create their bands, which outfit Apple, Fitbit and Samsung watches.

Sparkl Bands are committed to their environmentally-friendly upcycled product, taking luxury goods like Louis Vuitton and Gucci apart and using the leather to create their bands, which outfit Apple watches, Fitbits and Samsung watches. Sparkl was founded on the idea that fashion is versatile and can extend to even our Smart Watches. By creating a band that became an alternative to the purely functional Smart Watch rubber band they began to incorporate designer canvas into the watch band and found an amazing way to combine the luxury aspect of the designer canvas and the modern bohemian styles of bands.


From humble beginnings in Courtney's garage studio to now spacious Sparkl studios after an incredible amount of growth, changing the future of fashion and giving a portion of sales to charity.
