About this project

What is our Eyewear Sleeve?

The sensation of running around the house looking for your glasses is a feeling that's familiar to anyone that owns them. Precious time is wasted daily scrambling around for your beloved glasses. And so much unnecessary frustration on top of that. Sure there are hard cases for them, but even those are misplaced. Now imagine a case that's stylish, practical and stays with you wherever you go. Seems unobtainable, right? Not anymore with our Eyewear Sleeve.

The Concept

The idea came to us as a practical solution for a real problem. We were never happy with the way we carried our glasses. We had them crammed into shirt pockets, pants pockets, in our bags, in a cheap case or any other imaginable way possible. But there was always something that didn't feel right about that. It was so inconvenient and bothersome. So we started experimenting, a little for fun and a little as a challenge. And that was the beginning of Eyewear Sleeve!

We have spent countless hours trying to figure out the best shape and design for our sleeves for glasses. Starting with basic materials that offered proficient protection, we then moved to more sophisticated faux leather that insures proper flexibility and structure. We've tested different sizes of the case to guarantee compatibility with standard size glasses.

We then tested a variety of stitching technique to increase durability and withstand damage. Our neck straps were tested for comfort and reliability. And after few months of hard work, we arrived at our current design. Simple, elegant and practical.

Made with durable yet practical materials, our Eyewear Sleeves are stylish, fashion- forward, yet remain easy to use. Our premium faux leather, guarantees your glasses are out of harm's way, and our straps, available in copper chain and leather, ensure your glasses are around your neck and with you all day. Our imitation leather, accessible in brown and white, features expressive, eloquent design perfect for any season. 

How does it look like?

Our case for glasses is fashionable and matches to almost all clothing styles thanks to it's universal design. Whether you are at home, going to the office or that dinner party on Sunday- you can rest assured that your glasses'll be safe and you'll look fantastic.

We've also considered those annoying situations where there's insufficient light and there's no way to read anything with or without glasses. That's why we added an exclusive LED light to the eyewear sleeve. It can be attached and detached from the back if necessary.

So no more awkward fumbling with your case after night fall, or going on a nocturnal mission to find your glasses.The LED light on the back of the sleeve provides for easy usage in the dark. You can now also easily read a book or a newspaper at night with a hands-free, hassle-free light.

Risks and challenges

Our sleeve for glasses has been prototyped, and all that remains is to start production. However, we need some helping funding the manufacture of these sleeves. That's where you come in. If we get enough sponsors, we can green-light production.

We will try to start production as soon as possible. A lot of depends on production facility schedule and number of items we order. We assure you all our products are up to the same high quality and will remain that way.

Thank you for your support!
