This has been such an amazing month! Together we launched a new generation of sunglasses and kickstarted a future without waste. 

We sincerely thank you for your support. Thanks to you we reached our funding goal on day 1 and finished at over 220%! 

We limited our Kickstarter collection at just 250 pieces to keep our in-house production under control. We sold out at 251 pieces so that is just awesome!   

Also a BIG BIG thank you to all those wonderful people who helped us along the way with their expertise, time, connections, funding and insights. Your tremendous support has been a vital ingredient in making this project a reality.

Our 3D printers are ready to rumble, we have a fresh supply of recycled plastics and lots of coffee. Over the next couple of months, we will work relentlessly to get those sunglasses to you as soon as possible. We will keep you updated along the way and share our small successes and setbacks. For live stories, check out our Instagram and Facebook page.

For those who ordered sunglasses: we will reach out to you shortly with a small survey for you to select your choice of sunglasses, lenses and provide other details like shipping address. 

If you have any questions or suggestions, please reach out to us at we promise to answer all your emails.

With love from Antwerp,

Team w.r.yuma

      Hi Winston, thanks for your message.

      You can see all the models with the grey lenses on the Kickstarter page (also on our website). Unfortunately we only have one sample of the green and brown lens (we didn't have sufficient funds to pre-order these) so we won't be able to fit it in a frame for you to see.

      Halfway down the Kickstarter page (where it says Italian Lenses) you can at least see the 3 colors of the lenses. I hope you will be able to make a choice with this.

      Please let me know if I can assist you in any other way.

      Best regards,

      Hello Creator, we need more pictures on the 3 different lenses outlook on the frames individually, to make a better choice of selection.
