About this project

  

 

 

 

 

Luxury eyewear should not only be made from precious metal, but sustainable materials which possess high quality.

 

 Find us here: HYPEBEAST, GadgetFlow, TrendhunderSuperior Magazine, We Love Glasses, New Labes OnlyInspo Magazine, Not Just A Label.  

 

Split into three modern designs: Horyuji, Angkor and Stonehenge, Slate Soul a range of durable eyewear inspired by Eastern architecture and Western heritage.

 

 

Its name comes from the oldest wooden architect in the world, a Buddhist temple located in Japan. The circular frame design is inspired by "Ensō" in Buddhism. "Ensō" is a hand drawn circle that symbolises enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and mu (the void). Horyuji is therefore made with warmer colours of Slate and Oak wood to bring a peaceful feeling.

Inspired by the architectural style in which a single piece of work incorporates a mixture of elements from East & West to create designs that are new and original. Designs are influenced by the observations about Eastern heritages made of wood and Western ones made of stone. The durability of buildings with its relation to embody energy in technologies and materials has become an important feature of architecture, same as for our sunglasses.

The rocks are cut into 1mm thick layers with a technology named Foliation. It has been widely used in Coal mining industry until it's brought to fashion industry lately in Germany.

The slate layer is then combined with two high quality wood veneers under high pressure to form the frame. This structure makes our sunglasses more durable, more elastic, and not as easily broken as using a whole piece of wood. 

We use CNC machine to ensure the precision detail and it's the most eco-friendly way as it maximises yield of materials.

Every pair of sunglasses is sanded with 3 different grades of sandpaper and coated with high quality vegetable oil.

 

For the key of every optical products, lenses, we use Zeiss, one of the highest quality manufacturers of lenses in the world. All lenses are UV400(100% UVA/UVBA) with infused polarised filters, which highly protect your eyes under the sunlight. 

 

 

 

 

1. Materials Inspection. We inspect the slate and wood veneers in terms of smoothness, thickness, colour and the weight once we received them.

2. Frame Test. After the frame is finished, we check the hinges, balance of the frame. We will proceed to lens assembly only if all parts are perfectly done.

3. Quality Check. We basically check every details in this stage. Including the smoothness, the cleanness of the frames, etc.

Risks and challenges

Low budget: Although we're doing our best in presenting the project to all people we know, but we don't have much budget to be placed on marketing. We're very confident about our products and we need your help to spread this conscious fashion idea to people who care about fashion and our earth. We believe world of mouth is the key to build a sustainable brand and your shout out is our oxygen.

Delivery time: There's always a risk that manufacturers do not fulfil on time. But we're already a 3 year old company so that we will be working very closely with our manufacturers to ensure that everything is moving forward smoothly. However, if by chance there's any unanticipated delays, we promise to keep you informed.
