bkr was created on the belief that beauty can inspire change. It was founded in 2009 by Tal Soltz and co-founded by Kate Cutler. As close friends, Soltz and Cutler used their colorful common interests of sky-high boots, modern art, room service, clean designs, and Parisian street chic to produce the minimalist, modern art-inspired green products found on bkr's popular line. bkr combats the use of widespread chemicals by using BPA-free materials and food-grade, recyclable polypropylene. The people behind bkr hope to empower a movement that promotes beautiful, clean living devoid of harmful chemicals.
