I love wearing sunglasses, not only because they protect my eyes from the sun but also think they look great. Each year I generally buy myself a cheapy pair which get broken after a few months and end up in the bin.

This year I considering a different approach. I want to get a high quality pair of sunglasses that is also ethical and sustainable. The Kayu sunglasses on Eco-age.com by Livia Firth on Yooxygen fit the bill perfectly. They are made from sustainable bamboo and have been handmade by craftswomen in Asia that work in ethical conditions. At £120, they cost quite a bit more than I would usually spend on sunglasses but if I looked after them really well, they could last me for ages. I am also very tempted by their solid chunky look. The last ones are my favourites, I don’t think they will go out of fashion and will make a great statement look.

What do you think? would you spend £120 on a pair of sunglasses? Which pair do you prefer?

With warmest wishes

  1. I love that they’re bamboo! It’s such a great versatile material. In Asia, it’s often used as scaffolding, so it’s fun to see it being used for sunglasses!

  2. I love them and you’re right about them being classics that’d last a lifetime but given the option of £120 on a pair of sunnies or a festival I’d go for the festie and make do with my vintage specs! x

  3. I love these glasses! I came across by some really cool designer a few months ago (I wish I could remember the brand name) and they looked great.

  4. These look so cool! I don’t spend a lot on sunglasses as I tend to sit on them too often, but £120 is not dissimilar to the cost of a designer pair, so if I was going to spend that on sunglasses I’d definitely consider these!
