TORTOISE ACETATE / GRADIENT YELLOW LENS / GOLD HARDWARE

Just in time for the return of live music — we linked with Grateful Dead to release their first-ever collection of sunglasses. 

Begonia is a throwback aviator that OG Dead Heads will recognize. The sunglasses are finished with light tint gradient lenses in 3 colorways and Grateful Dead's iconic lightning bolt emblem on the temple ends.

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

  • Eco-conscious acetate frame
  • Optical Class 1 nylon lenses for clarity and durability
  • 100% UVA/UVB protection
  • Durable 3-barrel hinges with stainless steel temple cores for strength and flexibility

Dig 'em

Whether or not you reckon the "Grateful Dead Brand" be selling out, these shades are dead-set. I'll be diggin these pair of sunnies until the sun sets or my eyes close. Sweet as.

Sturdy. Very well made. But the best part is how they look.

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.
