NUDE ACETATE / GRADIENT AMBER LENS / SILVER HARDWARE

DESCRIPTION

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. Acetate is made in hand-cut sheet form instead of machine molds like plastic. The result is a production process that not only reduces environmental impact, but also creates a superior handmade product.

Each pair comes with an organic leather case helmed from Nopal cactus (also known as “prickly pear”) grown in Zacatecas, Mexico.

We plant a tree for each pair of glasses sold on our website in partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects.

FEATURES
  • Environmentally friendly bio-acetate frame 
  • 100% UVA/UVB protection to protect your eyes
  • Organic leather cases made from Nopal cactus
  • 5-barrel hinges with steel temple cores for durability

    Beautiful glasses with a nice gradient. The color is a great neutral tone but the lenses give it some flair.

    Sustainable Design

    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.

    Independent Frame of Mind

    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.

    Uncompromising Quality

    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.
