Bamboo sunglasses in the stylish Sahara Small design in Dark Bamboo.
Bambooka glasses are made from a species of giant bamboo. Bamboo is not only strong and sustainable it grows so fast - Up to a metre a day- its carbon dioxide absorption far out performs wood, plus we do not have to worry about depleting our rain forest or adding to the plastic pollution.
These stylish glasses not only look amazing, are ethically made and are kind to the environment, these glasses actually do good too! The designers Bambooka, are a non-profit organisation that works with the charity Vision Aid Overseas. The international charity are fighting to end poverty to transform access to eye care. For every pair sold it pays for an eye test and vision correction for those in need in five African countries.
Look stylish whilst helping others!
The Sahara design’s name is derived from one of the most well-known deserts, and appropriately, probably one of the sunniest places in the world. Its slightly curved, bamboo coloured frame is reminiscent of the sand dunes formed by the winds in ‘The Great Desert’ in Africa.
Every pair handmade by real people- no machines!
Fully UV blocking lenses
Highly scratch resistant lenses
Dark black frames in a smaller style of The Sahara
Also available in natural bamboo colour
At the end of life simply pop the lenses out and popped straight in to your compost to biodegrade or better still turn them in to prescription glasses!
As every pair are hand crafted, they may come with minor irregularities and imperfections -We find these add to their charm and no two pairs of Bambooka are ever 100% the same!
