Absolutely love the style, they fit so well and the quality as always is killer!
Love the fit and feel and the Apple Green lenses are AMAZING!
This is my second pair (different colorway) and the quality is extremely consistent. They fit and feel exactly as the first pair, with no variations or imperfections. I will be buying more from Akila, maybe even exclusively if they keep this up. I wore these yesterday and just in the time I was out with them on, 3 different people stopped me to ask what they were and where they could get them.
There’s a nice weight to them and everything feels like they’re meant to last. It’s helpful that they come with a case and lens cloth too
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.
