SOLO Eyewear is a hybrid line of bamboo and plastic sunglasses. Help make our Summer 2012 Collection a reality.

Hi There!

Thanks for stopping by our page. For the past year, we've been working around the clock to develop a top of the line collection of bamboo and plastic sunglasses.  We are on the verge of making the new SOLO line a reality...we need your help to get there!  The SOLO Summer Collection features exciting new colors, new materials and a new style!  We have covered half of the costs for production of this collection and we need your help to cover the remaining half!  With your support, we would love to make our Summer 2012 Collection a reality and get these shades on as many faces as possible!  These are some of the new colors and styles to be featured in the collection.

SOLO classic bamboo style sunglasses have a hybrid design, combining bamboo and plastic and turning the fusion into something great. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet, making SOLOs a more sustainable pair of sunnies.

We wanted to create a product that made people stop and ask who makes those sunglasses and where the heck can I get some?

We also wanted to create a brand that inspired people to go out and do awesome things. Sometimes when we want to start a project in our heads it can be a grand image or huge dream. However, every day people can make one choice, one decision, one action that can create a positive ripple effect much larger than they will ever know. One word that perfectly describes the power of one is "SOLO" and hence the inspiration behind our brand "SOLO Eyewear."

With your support we are targeting to have the SOLOs shipping to Backers by late July. We hope that you are moved and passionate about the idea and choose to support the project. Either way please tell at least one person about us. Everyone has a friend that likes to be stylish and make a positive impact at the same time.

SOLO Tees

In an effort to make our pledge levels unbelievably awesome, we decided to add t-shirts to the mix.  We will follow up with our amazing backers to see what style and size they would like.  Here is a peek at the styles.  Both are unisex and available in men's and women's sizes.
