«Move over, Banksy. There’s some incredible street art showing up and you won’t believe who’s holding the paint can.» The Huffington Post
We’re SKOG Eyewear, an we're here to bring you a very special and limited edition of sunglasses customized by old ladies who are learning how to be street artists.
We chose SKOG's best selling model and invited LATA 65, an initiative for the elderly within the urban art, to go crazy on them, thus creating one of a kind sunglasses. An exclusive edition for KICKSTARTER!
As with all SKOG sunglasses, this special edition will:
• be made of sustainable materials (cotton based acetate, not plastic)
• come with a special foldable case and cleaning cloth
• have 100% UV protection, high quality polarized lenses, for a superior visual experience (you won't believe how good they are)
Since acetate is the most flexible and premium material for eyewear, you can easily switch the lenses to prescription lenses and wear them as your everyday glasses.
One of a kind eyewear
Each pair will be absolutely unique but you will be able to choose the base model color (black or transparent acetate) and the tones you prefer. These are the options:
• Blue tones on black acetate
- Blue tones on transparent acetate
- Orange tones on black acetate
- Orange tones on transparent acetate
- Red tones on black acetate
- Red tones on transparent acetate
- Multicolor on black acetate
- Multicolor on transparent acetate
The customization of every pair will be made during LATA 65 workshops throughout Lisbon and remote Portuguese villages.
What's LATA 65?
LATA 65 is assumed as a project that aims to bring the less young closer to a form of artistic expression usually associated with younger ones and prove that concepts such as active ageing and intergenerational solidarity make more sense every day.
It is presented as a workshop taught in totally relaxed working environments, ideal for learning a variety of intervention techniques used in the streets and working directly with some of the best urban artists today.
So far, LATA 65 has done 34 workshops, with more than 400 participants, in Portugal, Spain, Brazil and USA.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to have iconic, exclusive, one of a kind SKOGs, customized by the Graffiti Grandmas!
We've been making high quality sunglasses for the past 4 years and shipping them worldwide. We have (very satisfied) customers in more than 40 countries, from the USA to Australia.

We need you!
To make this project as successful as possible we need your help! If you pledge to this campaign you will be the FIRST to receive these products and you will be getting them for a MUCH lower price than they would cost on our website or in a store! We understand that making a pledge is a big commitment and we WANT to reward you accordingly!
And remember: if our goal is reached, you will only be charged at the end of the campaign, and we will ship your reward as soon as it is made! If our goal is not reached, your card will NOT be charged.
Anyway, whether it’s purchasing a pair, sharing this project on social media or just telling a friend about it, your support is much needed and truly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
More about us
SKOG was born in 2014 to give all eyewear lovers what they always dreamed of: premium quality sunglasses at a lower price than premium designer brands. We were fed up with having to choose between high quality designer brands and cheap eyewear, which can be cool looking but is also bad for our eyes. So we created SKOG to bring you sunglasses with an iconic design, made from high quality, sustainable materials at an unbeatable price.
We've been on Shark Tank Portugal in 2015 and caught one of the sharks, which was a great kickoff for our brand, allowing us to grow our collection and reach foreign markets.
Our clients love our products and keep returning to our online shop. We receive love mail every week and the average rating of our products is 4.8 stars. This only makes us work harder every day to keep delivering great products and awesome customer care.
Even renowned designers approve!
Join our community (we like to call it family) and help us develop the coolest sunglasses ever!
Risks and challenges
We’ve been in the business of making awesome, premium sunglasses for 4 years now. 1 out of every 3 customers have already bought more than one pair of SKOGs and the average rating is 4.8 out of 5. So, we know how to make a perfect pair and deliver it on time.
MANUFACTURING: The model we chose to be customized by the Graffiti Grandmas is our bestseller: Dublin. A classic model that suits virtually every face shape. The molds and tooling are already being used in our regular collection and the factory is ready to fulfil our demand.
CUSTOMIZATION: Each pair will be unique and made on demand, once the campaign is over, during LATA 65 workshops. We will ask each backer to choose the acetate base color (black or transparent) and the predominant color (blueish, tones of red,tones of orange or multicolor, as shown in the pictures above), but the final result will always be unique.
FULFILMENT: Sometimes there are unexpected events that may cause a short delay (customs clearance or shipment unaccounted for), but we have shipped thousands of sunglasses to more than 40 countries and every pair reached its destination. We work with experienced logistics partners.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
