Quality is absolutely outstanding, would give 10 stars if I could.
My friend told me about AKILA because of their collab with Chinatown Market. He got them and was not expecting the level of quality and detail that he got. Well I needed a new pair before my trip to Europe so I got a pair of the classic Legacy style to give the brand a shot. HOLY MOLY THESE SUNGLASSES ARE AMAZING. These look like $600 japanese sunglasses. Quality is more than on point - you can just tell when you're holding them in your hand. The materials. Lenses are crispy AF. LOVE LOVE LOVE them so much, just bought a second pair as backup in case they sell out!
Founds these on IG after losing my Raybans. Quality is amazing for the price. My new everyday shades!
AKILA Eyewear is designed to last & handcrafted from eco-friendly plant-based cellulose acetate.
Cellulose acetate is a natural bioplastic made from the fibers of cotton or wood pulp. This compound is then mixed with various colored dyes, block casted, then sliced into sheets or chipped into tiny color pellets. The final product is biodegradable and renewable.
AKILA is an independent eyewear brand based in Los Angeles focused on handmade unisex sunglasses at anti-industry pricing.
Part of our mission is to provide a platform for brands and creatives to express their progressive outlooks. By providing access to better manufacturing and technical assistance, brands can offer new and exciting eyewear at a better quality than what they previously had within reach.
AKILA frames are handcrafted from premium acetate and stainless steel with Optical Class 1 nylon lenses. Each style goes through meticulous design, engineering and production processes to ensure top quality eyewear.
Every pair of sunglasses takes over 90 days to complete and requires more than 100 steps from start to finish.
