Huh?!..How do you make sunglasses from bamboo plants? Isn't bamboo hollow?
There are many steps before the natural bamboo is made into a workable material for our eyewear.
In fact it is TOP-SECRET information, however the final stage is a bamboo material similar to a wooden beam in appearance. It is then cut into small pieces ready for precision milling.
What do you mean by "handcrafted"?
Every bamboo frame component is CNC cut to the precise mm. The team of artisans then carry out a quality test and tensile strength procedure before the parts are used.
Each frame is then milled and grooved. Hand assembled, hand polished and finally lensed. That is why we use HANDCRAFTED | ORIGINALS in all our branding.
Is bamboo Sustainable?
We believe bamboo is possibly the most sustainable and ethical material for product design.Sustainable fashion is something we are proud to associate ourselves and undoubtably at the forefront of our work.
What does "No grain the same" mean?
Each pair possess an individual natural-grain quality and bespoke detailing that make them 100% your own. "No grain the same" we say.
Are the sunglasses heavy?,..they are like wood aren't they?
Each pair of bamboo sunglasses we sell are surprisingly light. Unlike wood the average weight of our bamboo sunglasses is 25G. (Not including case)
Will the bamboo frame warp over time, and the lenses just fall out?
Bamboo is naturally very strong and durable with a high tensile strength similar to steel and will not warp or bend.
Pandas eat bamboo don't they? Do pandas eat the same bamboo used for these sunglasses?
Pandas do not eat moso bamboo otherwise we would not use it. Our company is very earth conscious and we apply ecology to all our work ethics.
