AKILA frames are handcrafted from plant-based 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 pair of sunglasses
takes over 90 days to complete and requires nearly 100 steps from start
to finish. Our frames are made from the best cellulose acetate providers in the
world (usually Mazzucchelli, but we don't like to box ourselves in)— an
eco-friendly alternative to petroleum based plastics. Acetate also
allows for richer and more unique colors than traditional plastic.
Our optical-quality nylon lenses are thick and scratch-resistant
making them more durable, and also block 100% of UVA / UVB to keep your
eyes protected for years to come.
