The Essentials Collection is the foundation of AKILA – uncompromising modern reinterpretations of cult classic frames. Fashioned from plant-based acetate and stainless steel with Optical Class 1 nylon lenses, these frames are meticulously handcrafted to last a lifetime.
Terra is our collaboration with Polite Worldwide, a like-minded eco-conscious brand from LA. Together, we've created a frame that’s made with bio-acetate derived from sustainable wood and cotton pulp instead of petroleum-based plastics. Each pair comes with an organic leather case helmed from Nopal cactus (also known as “prickly pear”) grown in Zacatecas, Mexico.
