Sustainably Crafted Fishing Sunglasses

These Shades Have Frames Made From Recycled Fishing Nets

— May 26, 2022 — Fashion
Costa Del Mar's 'Untangled' collection of sustainably crafted frames has one of its most versatile members in the form of the 'Antille' fishing sunglasses, which are designed to offer the visual assistance and accuracy that you need while trying to grapple with everything from snook to largemouth bass. As a bonus, these shades will also ensure that you don't look out of place at the beach bar.

The 'Antille' fishing sunglasses are crafted from 97 percent to 100 percent recycled fishing nets sourced in partnership with Bureo, which works in South American communities to source plastic nets that are poised to be discarded. These worn-out nets and ground down into a plastic-like form that allows them to be turned into pellets which are used to manufacture the unique frames seen on the 'Antille' sunglasses. Besides being made from repurposed materials, the 'Antille' frames are themselves recyclable, adding to their eco-friendly credentials.

However, all the ocean-friendly features in the world would mean little if these sunglasses weren't designed to meet the needs of anglers, which the 'Antille' sunglasses certainly do. For one, they make use of Costa's 580 polarized lenses that are designed to ward off high-energy blue light that causes eye strain, whilst boosting blue, green and red hues and filtering out yellow. This means that even the most subtle of movements in the water won't go unseen, giving you a competitive advantage over the fish you're trying to get to, as well as other less well-equipped anglers out on the water. The lenses also absorb 100 percent of ultraviolet light, further protecting your eyes, despite being thinner and more lightweight than typical polarized glasses. Elsewhere, these shades offer vital design features including scratch-resistance.

As far as their aesthetics are concerned, the 'Antille' may be positioned as fishing sunglasses but their relaxed styling means they're just as appropriate to wear on hikes, urban walks or patio sessions. Priced at $206 or $226 depending on the lens option, the 'Antille' fishing sunglasses are the ideal sun-thwarting eyewear for anglers who want a competitive edge on the water but don't want to swap out pairs every time they're back on land.
