These beautifully designed handmade leather sunglasses from Jbird Collective are stylish, ethically sourced and totally unique.
The Portland, Oregon based start-up has launched a Kickstarter campaign to back its line of one-of-a-kind eyewear. Leather sunglasses are an innovation in the realm of eyewear for a number of reasons. They are supple and flexible, making sitting on your sunglasses a thing of the past. They age organically with exposure to sunlight and body temperatures, meaning that each pair will develop a unique pattern of tanning, with darker coloring occurring naturally around the edges. They allow the makers to incorporate distinctive design elements, such as bold hand stitching and their elegant embossed bird logo.
Jbird leather sunglasses are handmade in house by their creators, using American-made Wickett & Craig leather and high quality polarized lenses. They're a great example of crossover in the fashion industry, utilizing the manufacturing techniques and timeless style of leather work to create totally original, classically stylish eyewear.
