After trial and error we are now ready to bring to market, our first of many designs that have been Inspired by Nature.

We want people to do a double-take and have to get a pair of their own. It is not just about the look, the fit is ergonomically tailored and comfortable. These sunglasses are made not only to perform for all types of sports and athletes, but to also take your style to another level. These glasses will be a staple in your life. Whether your style is rocking hard at sports or hard rocking fashion, they WILL perform for you.

If you unable to sponsor us today join our e-mail list to keep in touch, and learn about upcoming styles from Grein.

                                           The Shades

Grein Optics are made of lightweight to bamboo to transcend to all aspects of life, from playing hard to keeping it low-key. The design and quality of Grein eye-wear is incomparable. These frames have been custom designed to fit, featuring curves that protect and shield your eyes. They provide a striking look, with features and technology that are found in plastic and metal frames. Grein does not subscribe to the same archaic designs found in other wooden eye-wear on the market. Our frames are made from a renewable resource, solid bamboo. Display your originality with our sleek contrasting wood graphic in-lays. Don't just follow trends, set them with Grein.

                                               The Sealer

Our very own Pharaoh Seal-  is an Eco-friendly wax/sealer that thoroughly coats the bamboo during our custom hot dip process. We feel it is important to make a positive impact in the optic industry without creating a negative impact on the environment by using toxic sealers that are used to seal other wood sunglasses on the market. Our beeswax based sealant prevents the bamboo from drying out, and protects the frame from damaging UV rays.

                                                 The Lens

This is a Carl Zeiss TAC lens that gives HD, high definition, polarization. What is a TAC lens? A TAC lens is made up of three lenses laminated together, but are remarkably half as thick as standard poly-carb polarized lenses. Also, TAC lens contains less impurities than poly-carb lenses, which ensures clearer and crisper visibility, as well as being more scratch resistant. Since this lens is thinner it provides a lightweight feel that is essential not only for the performance of the glasses, but also gives us the ability to design streamline glasses that are fashion forward.

Your glasses will come in a rubberized foam inner box with an outer sleeve box that slides with ease and our Grein electric colored flannel polish bag.

                                        Where We Are Now

We currently are in production and will get your product delivered in a timely fashion. We hope to have many company supporters to help us start out on the right foot. Our product is designed and engineered in Denver, CO, U.S.A., and is made of from China's strongest Old Growth non-stained bamboo grown in China where our product is also being produced. To assure the best quality in every product we have team members on the ground floor of our partnered production factories in China, working hard to ensure every pair is of the utmost quality.

Why We Need Your Help

The glasses in the the photo are a production sample. With your support we will get Grein Optics onto the faces of people worldwide.

  • Allow for larger production orders
  • Enable New Designs that are in the prototyping stage to be moved into production
  • Give an Innovative start-up Company a chance to stir things up in  the optic world, as well as provide an edgy look to all who wear them.
