I am a first time buyer of Akila Eyewear. I purchased the Verve 2.0 glasses from a post I saw on IG, and i'm glad I made that decision. The quality is amazing, and the packaging is what really sold me. Overall, great shipping experience as well and will be purchasing more items in the future.
These sunglasses are one of my favorite things that I own. I’ve never bought myself a pair of sunglasses that were more than $10-20, but these, omg I had to have. With the pink lenses?! Omg!!! Anything by Soto I’m obsessed with but these were just out of this world! And the cloth that comes with...it was the cherry on top! I’m extremely happy! Thank you both so much!
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.
