Natural wooden sunglasses Simba from Shadeshares

Natural wooden sunglasses with a slight square shape. They’re classic enough to wear year-round – slip them on by the pool and with tailoring when you’re back home in the city. These ones are definitely unisex, flattering for both men and woman. Select size M or L for men and S or M for women. Size S-M-L compares with the full width of the sunglasses: 148mm, 152mm or 155mm.

These shades come in a foldable protective pouch, which can be folded completely flat, when the sunglasses are out. Additionally the shades are made of sustainable birch veneer. And last but not least, these natural wooden shades are produced with love and care in a social project in Kenya: the SOS Childrens village in Nairobi.

Material:

  • 100% Finnish birch veneer (wood)
  • polarized 400k UV protected lenses
  • Protective pouch made of cork

About Shadeshares

Shadeshares designs and produces quality sunglasses made of Finnish birch veneer with polarized UV protection lenses. All of their sunglasses, down to every single detail, are made in SOS Children’s Village in Nairobi, Kenya. Their workshop is currently training and employing 20 young adults who come from the Kariobangi & Korogocho slums teaching them valuable working-life skills.

One of the core values of Shadeshares is to become a zero carbon footprint company. As a company they plant one tree for each Shadeshares sunglass pair sold. All sunglasses are made from environmentally sustainable materials, and the manufacturing chain is open and transparent. They know who works at their workshop and they make sure that they have proper working conditions.

A sustainable business model

Our aim is to build a sustainable business. It all starts with our business concept of producing on demand. This means that we only produce this garment when a customer has ordered it. We don’t mass produce and never over-produce either. We know that 30% of the garments in stores are over produced from the start end up in landfill. That’s why we are determined to our custom-fit & production on demand approach.

When it comes to each product, we are aiming to be transparent about the way it’s produced and where the fabrics come from.

The Production:

This design is crafted by our skilled seamstresses in our atelier in Lithuania. We have visited the atelier numerous times and have a great collaboration. The employees work in very good conditions and get a decent salary.
