German engineered lenses
Our lenses are made by Carl Zeiss Vision, the experts in optical clarity & protection since 1846! Ask Dad about his binoculars - same lens company!

We make our frames in Sydney and then put each pair through an 8 step inspection process.

Are the lenses any good?

Cheap reading glasses = cheap lenses = tired & fuzzy eyeballs.

Not ours! We only use the very best lens manufacturer.

Our German lens partner, Carl Zeiss Vision, is the 'Top Gun' of lens making. They make all our reader, prescription and sun lenses.

Engineered optical perfection & peace of mind your eyes are fully protected.

All lenses are UV400 and offer 100% protection.

What if I don't like them?

Are you really sustainable?

We'd like to think so. The word 'sustainable' is over used and confusing. This is our version of sustainable.

100% recycled frames
We make and control the manufacturing of our frames in Sydney to make sure no one nor the planet is harmed. And no cheap labour!

End of life
We take back broken parts and entire frames to be recycled. Please email us and we’ll give you the free Reply Paid address to send them to.

Less CO2
Because we use only 100% recycled plastic in our frames, we use 70-75% less CO2 in our manufacturing than almost all other brands who use virgin materials (brand new plastic/ bioacetate).

Less waste
Our manufacturing process is zero waste. Every piece of our off-cut plastic finds a new home.

Less energy
Because we've reengineered the frame, we use less energy in our production. We make a frame in 90 seconds instead of the typical 100 hours.

Sunnies made by the sun
Our manufacturing partner has installed some serious solar panels on the factory roof. We only runs our frame making machines in the day to take advantage of this renewable power. Good thing the suns always shining in Sydney!

Our lenses are manufactured by Carl Zeiss Vision in Hong Kong. We cut and fit our lenses at Zeiss in Adelaide.

Box, case & cloth
All are made from certified 100% recycled materials in our certified factories in China (via our local agent in Sydney).

Plastic removal
Through Plastic Bank, we prevent plastic waste from reaching the ocean. The process 100% traceable and certified. Each pair sold stops 0.5kg (equiv. to 25 plastic bottles)

Carbon removal
We lock away 10kg of CO2 through C2Zero who uses Mastercard Blockchain.

We use compostable mailing satchels that you can bury in your garden and we use Australia Post's carbon neutral postal service.

Great Sunnies

Bloody love em!

I'm back for more!

I love that these glasses are made from recycled materials and look good! My only disappointment was they didn’t come in red - and then Cherry Soda was released! So, I had to get another pair… ;)

Colour is fantastic! They are super comfy to wear. The frame is slightly smaller than I like but still look fine
