Eden refers to a Biblical story stating humanity originated from this ecological paradise to Earthly responsibilities.

Our Walden style is named after the book by Henry David Thoreau, which reflects upon simple, environmentally healthy living in a woodland cabin.

Our Muir style is named after John Muir, one of the first American environmentalists. Known as "Muir of the Mountains" and the "Father of the national parks," he was an ecological hero. So, we named our most classic frame after him.

This frame colour represents our unique hemp material in all of its unfiltered glory. The plant fibres are left in their natural state with absolutely no colouring whatsoever. 

Using naturally extracted organic dye, we’ve created a darker colour to give you a more classic option. These earthy frames are made from plants that are quite literally are grown in the earth. Natural hemp fibre specs are visible on the material surface which creates a look that we like to call “tortoise hemp’.

Deep blue colouring from eco dye is combined with our sustainable hemp technology to create this bold frame colour.


An earthy colour for natural eyewear and our classic lens.

This yellow tint is from a performance range of lens dyes. This particular shade was developed to help professional tennis players.

Floral vibes and crimson tones.

A gradient lens from pale grey to black.



A hemp fabric box, protective hemp pouch and microfibre cleaning cloth is included with every pair of sunglasses.


Everything about our eyewear is unconventional: the materials, the process, the design and the look. If you’re someone who sees things differently, this one’s for you.


We want the lifecycle of hemp to be as long as possible. Our two-year warranty covers damage and defects, and we’ll provide a replacement pair for frames that cannot be repaired.

For as long as you have your sunglasses, we’ll do our best to repair your frames and keep them wearable for years to come, free of charge.



 Most eyewear is mass-produced by machines in factories that use plastic as the main material.

Plastic is terrible for the environment as it contributes to climate change and ocean pollution, not to mention every product looks exactly the same and lacks character.

 Hemp is the most sustainable, eco-friendly and diverse resources on earth — but not many know about it... and no... you can't smoke them.



It’s the most sustainable material on earth, and it also happens to be absolutely beautiful.

We decided to use hemp in developing the “world’s first” hemp eyewear, that’s better for the environment and acts as a talking point to raise awareness of hemp. 

The plant’s fibres also create unique patterns, which makes each pair of sunglasses as individual as the person who wears them.

Nature has no straight lines.

Our plant fibre material is unlike any plastic or wood grain, as the material is actually made up of thousands of individual plant fibres.

Our hardened frame material is formed by processing plant fibre into solid material.

It is comprised simply of hemp fibres and the right amount of water which reacts with the hemp as a binding agent, proving that we don’t have to use plastics for eyewear anymore.

All of our frames are crafted by hand using our sustainable technology, organic materials and traditional artisanal techniques. Every single screw, rivet and hinge is marked, drilled and assembled by a real human being, not a machine.


We only use precision-engineered components made from the best materials — if it's not made from hemp, then it's made from the highest-grade titanium or alloy to guarantee long-lasting performance and quality.

Hemp Eyewear is not mass producing tens of thousands of frames through injection moulding plastic. There are no instances of mistreatment amongst our workers or mysteries surrounding any part of our production process.


Your nose will also thank you when wearing Hemp Eyewear. Even our nose pads are made from hemp for maximum comfort.

Have you ever been told you have a big head? We have. And we’ve accounted for the unfortunate people like us. Our high-grade nickel spring hinges allow anyone to wear our eyewear, no matter your head shape or size.

Our eyewear is for those of you who like to stand out, for eccentric, characterful, contrarian individuals.

Protect the planet.. and your eyes. Our lenses protect you from 99-100% of UV light from the sun. So we've got you covered.

As one of the first crowdfunding marketing agencies, Enventys Partners has brought more than 750 crowdfunding projects to life through lead generation, campaign page creation, public relations, email marketing, Facebook Advertising, campaign management and more.

Risks and challenges

We foresee little risk in the project as we already manufacture sunglasses in our workshop. Investment into industrial machinery has already been made meaning we can scale up our manufacturing process and fulfil demand.

We have already run 2 crowdfunding campaigns and have gained all the experiences that go with it from supply and manufacture to logistics and fulfilment. Everything is covered.
