Welcome to our BRAND-NEW blog 'MADE NATIVE', where we explore music, fashion and cultural endeavors from a native perspective. Our first weeks editorial is on our own branding concept, and thoughts behind the company that is BAM-BOO | ORIGINALS
"Why Bamboo?" people ask. Well, "Where to begin" we say.
It's an ideal material to use for sunglasses design. Manufactured to a Lightweight, dense and beautiful finish. There are very few things holding it back.
Secondly, the thought these frames were once growing metres tall from the ground up is undoubtably mesmerizing. So the question for all you earthy folk, woodsie lovers or fashionisters is! How could you not be excited about owning a pair of Bams?
To produce a quality unlike anyone else, we scoured the world to find exceptional craftsman to hand make the 2013 collection.
All our frames are precision cut using the finest machinery then individually hand assembled. Hand sanded, and hand polished. So we do believe our brand has earnt the title of Handcrafted | Originals.
The imediate affiliation you have with the bamboo sunglasses is how it should be...POSSESSIVE! In a good way of course.
Each pair possess an individual natural grain quality and bespoke detailing that make them 100% your own. "No grain the same" we say.
Infact, speaking of the grain. The bamboo has a natural interwoven effect, made up of different colour tones. Unlike wood when the frame is hit by the sun, small strands of fibre seem to almost glow. Creating an emense ammount of detail to each sunglasses frame.
It really is luxury eyewear at it's finest.
Spaning almost an entire century of inspiration, all 5 designs were created with two key attributes in mind. A style for everyone and a place for everyone!
Hit the beach and surf. Pop a skateboard. Bike a trail. You name it!
Travel in the city, or adventure through the wild knowing that Polarized lenses are included in each pair of our bamboo sunglasses. This was a paramount decision so optically surface glare is reduced, and solar UV protection is at the max.
All in all this brief took us two years to complete. Yeah, you heard it!
The 2013 collection is the result all our reserch and design into all things bamboo. So take pride in wearing your bams, knowing there simply not 'off the peg' frames.
We hope you enjoy the 2013 collection, as this is only the begining. We never stop our in-house design team from bringing new ideas to the 'bamboo table'. Seriously, we have one! Ultimately we will try our best to do this incredible material justice, developing the most alternative styles and premium quality available.
Take nature with you.
