Beauty Basic: You've got to drink water + sleep. bkr can't tuck you into bed early but, this luminous beauty essential will motivate you to drink 10x more water, and love it (like it's cake). Why bkr? bkr is like the perfect shirt- soft and easy, and you absolutely can't live without it. A staple at fashion week and loved by A-list celebrities the world over bkr is a must-have that most effectively delivers the thing most crucial for flawless beauty - water.
How many collections are presented each year?
Under the creative direction of bkr Founder Tal Winter, we create Trend Collections in the Spring and Fall. Capsule Collections (like the Hearts) are released once or twice a year.
How are the colours determined?
Collections are based on runway trends in New York, London, Paris and Milan. To us, fashion is a combination of the art we see during Fashion Week and what is happening around the world now. It doesn't exist in a bubble. That thoughtfulness both drives our creativity and directs our mission.
WHAT INSPIRES THE DESIGN?
We are inspired by everything we love. The well-designed, the hip new bar in town, the most luxe hotels, Italian furniture, couture jumpsuits, sky-high boots, Parisian street chic, Tokyo minimalism, the cool, the pretty, the calm, the bright, soft white sheets and everything transparent and clean. Above all, we believe that the objects in your life should be beautiful, effortless and loved.
HOW DO BKRS GET SUCH CUTE NAMES?
Founders Tal and Kate spend hours on airplanes, in hotels, on weekends and in between everything else obsessing over the little details. They carefully craft every name to match each bkr's personality and inspiration, and they never settle on any name unless they both love it completely.
WHY ARE COLOURS DISCONTINUED?
Trend Collections and Capsule Collections are generally limited edition. While some colours remain in stock or come back, most sell out and we put them in the vault to make room for new colours. So get the ones you love when you see them or they may be gone forever. Sad face.
ARE all COLLECTIONS LIMITED EDITION?
We are inspired by runway, art, street and beauty and evaluate emerging trends seasonally. bkr Trend Collections reflect what's happening around the world and the colour palette of the times. Some trends are more short-lived and we treat those as limited edition colours. Others become iconic and remain foundational bkr colours as long as they remain in fashion just like the perfect t-shirt, the nude nail and distressed jeans remain relevant and necessary forever and go with everything. Capsule Collections are all limited edition.
Will you make more hearts?
Capsule Collections (like the Hearts) are released once or twice a year and are all limited edition. They sell out fast and are ultimately all placed in the vault. We know people love them so we ask the founders daily to make more. It's always a surprise if and when they do. Following us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter is the best way to be the first to know.
How many bkrs do I need?
How many pairs of shoes do you need? The answer is you should have as many as you want. (Our general attitude toward everything in life.) One at work, one in your purse, one in your gym bag, one by your bed, two because you love the new colours and a couple in the dishwasher so that you always have a clean one on hand. "I have enough cute little bkrs." said no one ever.
Which should I get: BIG or little?
You need both. The little 500ml bkr is the original gangster. It fits perfectly in your purse, in your travels and on urban hikes. You can never have enough little bkrs, period. The 1L is really, really deliciously big and holds 2.5 lbs of water. It's exactly right for a long yoga class, your desk or on a staycation.
How big is bkr?
bkr comes in two sizes: original 500mL (16 oz) and BIG 1L (32 oz). The Original bkr is 7.9 inches tall (20 cm), 3.1 inches wide (7.9 cm) and has a 0.8 inch (2.0 cm) opening. Big bkr is 9.65 inches tall (24.5 cm), 3.94 inches wide (10 cm) and has a 0.95 inch (2.4 cm) opening.
How much does bkr weigh?
The Original (500 mL) bkr weighs just under 1lb (14.4 oz). Big (1 L) weighs 1.5 lbs (24 oz).
What is bkr made of?
bkr is made of BPA-free, phthalate-free, FDA approved materials. The bottle is soda-lime glass, the sleeve and gasket are silicone and the cap is made of food-grade, recyclable polypropylene.
Will bkr fit in my cupholder?
The Original 500mL bkr fits most cupholders. It also fits perfectly in your bag, on your desk, and into your everyday routine. The Big 1L bkr will not fit in your cupholder, but may still fit in your cute tote.
IS BKR RECYCLABLE?
Yes, bkr is 100% recyclable. If you need any assistance with recycling any of the parts, please contact us at ADMIN@MYBKR.CO.UK.
Glass is super fly, in every way. It's better for your body and the earth. It's chemically inert; it doesn't alter the taste of its contents and doesn't allow any unsafe chemicals to leach and make you sick. And it's is a fully recyclable material. It can be recycled endlessly and recovered glass is used as the majority ingredient in new glass containers. And without question, everything tastes better out of glass.
bkr's silicone sleeve is perfectly soft and grippyand non-toxic. It protects the glass, insulates whatever's inside it, is dishwasher safe, clean, beautiful, and minimal. Silicone is also 100% recyclable. You can find specialty recycling centres, or mail it back to us and we'll recycle it for you.
What the hell is BPA and is it in my bkr?
BPA or Bisphenol A is a chemical found in plastic water bottles. It has been linked to a host of ailments including increased risk of cancer, obesity, early onset puberty, and diabetes. While many plastic products contain BPA replacements, we don't want to find out 10 years from now that those aren't safe either. There is no BPA in your bkr and we don't put a BPA replacement in it either.
CARING FOR BKR
How do I clean and store my bkr?
Clean your bkr with hot soapy water or on the top rack of your dishwasher. The sleeve is dishwasher safe and does not need to be removed, but it's easy to slip off if you want to. Our founder Tal will show you how: click here. We recommend storing your bkr with the cap off.
IS MY BKR BREAKABLE?
Your bkr bottle is made of soda-lime glass - it's durable and protected by a soft silicone sleeve, but it is still glass - so treat it carefully as you would your cell phone or any other thing you love. Don't freeze it or leave it in your car in the freezing cold - it will break. If you accidentally break it in the first 90 days, we will replace it for you. Please see our Returns and Replacement policy section for details.
Does the sleeve come on and off easily?
Yes. It's super easy to take the sleeve off and to put it back on. Our founder Tal made a quick video [click here] demonstrating exactly how.
Can I put my bkr in the freezer? The microwave?
Please avoid freezing, using in the microwave, or exposing to sudden temperature changes. If you freeze your bkr or leave it in your car in freezing temperatures, the water will expand and the glass will break. It will break your heart. Trust us on this.
Can I put hot liquids in my bkr?
bkr isn't intended for boiling hot liquid (or for freezing) and we don't recommend putting hot liquid in unless the glass itself is already warm. The glass is not tempered so you'll want to avoid rapid temperature changes which could cause your bkr to crack. Treat bkr as you would a regular glass, and it will love you back.
I want that cute bkr I had my heart set on - why can't I find it in the shop?
This is the biggest bkr heart breaker. We advise that you get the bkr bottles you love when you see them. Don't wait! Many colours are put into the vault to make room for new ones based on emerging trends. We are inspired by runway, art, street and beauty and evaluate trends seasonally. Our Trend Collections reflect what's happening around the world and the colour palette of the times. Some trends are more short-lived and we treat those as limited editions - they sell out very fast. Others become iconic and remain foundational bkr colours as long as they remain in fashion - just like the perfect t-shirt, the nude nail and distressed jeans remain relevant essentials forever and go with everything.
What happens if a product is out of stock?
Many bkrs are limited edition. While some colours remain in stock or come back, most sell out and we don't make them again. We advise that you get the ones you love when you see them and don't wait.
What are my payment options?
bkr accepts PayPal.
When will my card be charged?

What are counterfeits?
Counterfeit bkr products are fakes or imitations of authentic bkr products that are aimed at tricking people into believing that they are authentic products. Counterfeit products are not held to bkrs high standards for design, manufacturing, testing and safety.
How can I identify a fake bkr website?
Online auction and forum sites are a common place for counterfeiters to sell fake bkrs. If you have any doubts about whether a site is an authorised bkr retailer please contact ADMIN@MYBKR.CO.UK.
The Impact of counterfeiting
Counterfeiters don't pay taxes and don't pay fair wages or benefits to their employees. They aren't accountable to human rights and environmental regulations and they don't adhere to child labor laws, anti-sweatshop laws, or restricted substances laws. This puts workers and the environment at risk, and customers too, because you don't know what materials were actually used to make the counterfeit products. Shopping counterfeit sites also puts you at risk for identity theft. All of these factors drive us to work very hard to shut down counterfeiters.
How can I report counterfeits?
To report counterfeit bkr products or suspect websites to bkr, please send an email to ADMIN@MYBKR.CO.UK. Please provide as much descriptive information as possible about the products or the website, such as the location of the products, the seller of the products, the website address, etc. We appreciate your help in the battle against counterfeiting.
What do I do if I bought a counterfeit bkr?
If you bought a fake bkr you should demand a refund from the seller. If it's an online site, you should leave a review to warn people. Please also report the seller to us at ADMIN@MYBKR.CO.UK. Finally, treat yourself right and buy yourself an authentic bkr here or at an authorised retailer.
