I love how unique and well-made my Akila frames are. I was able to take them to my local Costco and get the lenses replaced with my prescription. They fit well and didn’t need any adjustment for a guy with a big head. Can’t wait to buy the matching sunglasses.
They are so cool!. I live in Canada and they came in super-fast, charged me unexpected taxes but ok. I have a very small head and I always struggle when getting glasses because they look huge on me but these are superb, great quality and the perfect size. Also, the yellow frame is too cool to be true. They seriously need to have photos of people wearing them and more colourrrrr options!!! anyways here is a picture of me and my friend Pepe.
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.
