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!
Zambezi is our retro design, shaped to effortlessly fit with the curves of the face. These more round fitting sunglasses are reminiscent of the meandering of one of Africa’s most famous rivers, The Zambezi.
Every pair handmade by real people- no machines!

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!
