You can really see and feel the quality in these sunglasses - they're lightweight but luxurious in touch vs. plastic and flimsy like similar styles/brands at this price point. I have a larger face shape and this fits perfectly for me (vs. the Logos, which is too narrow for my face). Shows up well in photos, too! Def recommend if you are shopping with my circumstances! I love these so much, I just bought a few other Apollo styles to try on as well.
Love love love the frames.
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.
