this all started as a
The assignment: to develop a business concept that could be started on a student budget.
Our idea: insanely comfortable Apple Watch bands.
We used a stretchy material that could be easily stretched over the wrist while keeping a secure fit. When we made a respectable B+ on the project, we realized these bands were our ticket to success. That's when we borrowed Braxton's Nana's retro sewing machine and started hand-making bands in the hopes that we would never have to get real jobs after graduation.
After receiving an innovation award from Texas Tech, we launched our business in 2017.
In Spring 2018 we managed to graduate and began building Braxley Bands full time.
Last year, we began planting a tree with every band sold. By the end of 2020, we plan on having 100,000 trees planted through our donations.
Today, we are more passionate than ever about this project and are pretty much living our dreams. We hope you'll stick around to see the progress we make!

These are more than just watch bands. They are the perfect combination of style and functionality. Sport your band at the gym or rock it on a night out and always remember to live with originality. THE AMERICAN DREAM IS ALIVE.
Enjoy your band(s)!

We designed Braxley Bands with three things in mind: comfort, quality, and style. In addition to being flexible, the bands are also machine washable and moisture wicking.
Braxley Bands are tremendously versatile. They can meet the rigorous training requirements of top athletes and outdoor adventurers while still looking good with any outfit, in any environment.
