When one speaks of innovative sunglasses in the context of today, the consumer envisions a futuristic design or a high-tech embellishment of sorts. Forward-thinking company Ochis has a different vision, however.
Founded by Maxim Gavrilenko, the brand embraces reusable organic materials as an alternative to plastic. The result is a line of innovative sunglasses with a frame that boasts the use of coffee and flax. The process of assembly is fairly straightforward but incredibly interesting. Orchis glues the organic ingredients together with a soybean oil-based glue. The silhouette is then processed through a digital mechanism with mathematical precision. Finally, the ecologically friendly innovative sunglasses are shaped and perfected by hand. As an added bonus, the frame is biodegradable and can serve as a nutritious boost to soil or water.
