I'm Nate Pruszinske, an engineering student living in Hawaii! I was tired of monotone sunglasses that desaturated colors, so I set out to design lenses that enhanced an experience, not just darkened it. After over two years of designing lenses, I created three unique double-gradient filters, and put them to the test here in Hawaii! Enhancing your vision using color, light, and vignettes, these glasses act similar to social media filter effects! People love wearing FLTRs, and are shocked at the difference they make outdoors. I look forward to sharing this same experience with all of you.
Our unique lenses are what really set FLTR apart from regular sunglasses, which are typically dull, monotone, and desaturating to your view. FLTR's patent-pending double-gradients lenses shade your upper and lower view, brightening your center focus and enhancing color and contrast like nothing you've ever seen before! Instead of just darkening your view with regular sunglasses tones, you can choose between our three filtered lenses - Aloha, Resol, and Lago. FLTRs also use the latest protective vision technology, preventing 99-100% of the sun's harmful radiation (UVA and UVB rays) from impacting and damaging your eyes! So not only are you enhancing your view, you're protecting your eyes!
Aloha is a multi-colored filter that will make the skies bluer and the earth softer. Inspired by the vibrant colors of Hawaii, the Aloha FLTR is blue on top and seamlessly fades down to a soft amber, creating an exciting and vivid perspective while enhancing the natural colors of the outdoors. No matter the weather - even when the sun’s not shining - FLTRs give off a colorful and dramatic effect.
Resol is a FLTR that captures the essence of vintage film and turns it into a wearable masterpiece. Experience the golden glow everywhere you turn your head with this truly one-of-a-kind amber and gold double-gradient. Shockingly beautiful and comfortable on the eyes, Resol is a FLTR that’s going to vividly enhance your perspective everywhere you go.
Lago, named after the beautiful Lago Maggiore lake in Northern Italy, brings a cool and exciting look that makes your perspective pop! Adding a refreshing effect to your view, the double blue gradients and light center shade the bright sky and the glare, leaving a glowing effect in front of you. This FLTRs unique quality will have you primed for another outdoor adventure.
In addition to the unique perspective FLTR provides, we want our backers to look good too. Our frames are made with TR90, a Swiss produced plastic, that has incredible durability, flex, and lightweight properties. The frames are extremely comfortable as they can bend under pressure and contour to your face. We offer a select trio of frames that are both high in quality and timeless in design. The matte-black frames come in 3 styles: Round, Classic, and Square. With comfortable and lightweight frames, you can take your FLTRs with you everywhere you go.
In order to get FLTR up and running, we've set a goal for $20,000. By reaching this goal, we're able to begin manufacturing immediately and will work as hard as we can to have FLTRs in your hands by September 2017. Mix and match our three filtered lenses and three frames to find your favorite styles! Upon completion of the campaign, we plan to grow our line with more frames and filtered lenses, bringing you the styles and designs you love!
We know you'll be amazed when you try on FLTRs, so we want to get them into as many hands as possible. You can help make this happen by ordering your FLTRs from our Kickstarter page and sharing this story with friends and family on social media. You can also visit our website at FLTRglasses.com and follow our social media for news and promotions.
Risks and challenges
As a small startup, here at FLTR we are constantly working around the clock to deliver the highest quality product to you as soon as possible. As with any startup, there are risks and challenges along the way, but nothing we're unable to overcome!
We want nothing more than for you to begin wearing FLTRs as soon as possible and to surpass your expectations in every way! Our manufacturer is on-board and is ready to start manufacturing as soon as we give them the green light. As manufacturing these unique lenses has proven to be tricky, delays are always possible, but we have included a safe window of time to be sure the product is made with quality and efficiency.
Whether you've had the opportunity to try FLTRs already or are excited to try them for the first time, we would sincerely appreciate your support by backing our campaign and sharing it on social media. Together, we can take this project to the next level, and change the way we see the world through sunglasses!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
