I love these glasses they are absolutely fun to wear, stylish with every outfit, and they have a great feel to them. The only problem I had with them is that they aren't secured very well behind my ears just due to the shape and can slip off my face if I'm not careful. Otherwise these are my favorite sunglasses in a very long time!
Amazing material, superb fit! The Akila support team is awesome too in specific Mallory!! She helped me make sure I had the perfect pair and when they arrived I was more than impressed.
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.
