Men, women, everyone – enjoy the sun, shield your eyes in planet-conscious style. Designed by us, made for you.
We’ve gone au-naturel, with arms crafted from bamboo. Highly versatile, seriously sustainable, bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet (it’s also stronger than steel). Between this and plastic, there’s no contest (but there is a lessened environmental impact from each pair produced).
Harnessing a composite structure, our glasses have the strength and versatility of metal, with the warmth and luxury of naturally grown wood. Carefully contoured to comfortably sit upon the face, these designs are inspired by icons from decades gone by.
Laminated veneers form the uncompromising structure of the arms - polished smooth and finished with natural wood treatments (this, is beautiful utility). Expect an unparalleled feel against the skin – for those long, lazy summer days.
Lines and bursts of colour are revealed in the swirls and subtle shapes of the wood – after all, nature is our style guide – contributing characterful lines and faint grain. Expect an unparalleled feel against the skin – maximum comfort, maximum style.
It all began during a hot, hazy summer day. We looked, we searched, we scoured the internet - we failed to find even a single pair of sunglasses that came close to offering style and solid ethics.
So we set to work.
The mission? A unique line-up of sunglasses, with the best UV blocking lenses, and frames crafted from sustainable material.
The journey hasn’t been easy. It’s taken experiment after experiment to discover the right materials for the task. Eventually, it was bamboo and birch that made the cut – visually striking, wonderfully tactile.
As for the lenses, for now at least, they remain plastic. Technology simply isn’t there yet. But until it is, the few plastic parts that Vanacci Sunglasses do contain (and the shipping that gets them to you), will be balanced out by a £1 donation to the International Tree Foundation – who planted 760,000 trees all over the globe in 2017 alone.
