About this project
Hello and thank you for visiting our project page. With your help we can launch a new sunglasses brand that incorporate sustainable materials and manufacturing processes.
Everyone that pledges will be able to choose which model and color they want at the end of the project. All sunglasses will ship in January.
Sunglasses have traditionally been made from harmful plastics and metals through environmentally damaging manufacturing processes. We created PANDA with the belief that there is no reason why stylish sunglasses should not come in an environmentally friendly form.
Where We Are Now.
We have spent the last year fine-tuning our designs. We have received countless feedback from our local community and peers. We our launching our first 5 designs that will come in three different stains: natural, brown, and black. We have partnered with a woodsmith/manufacturer and prototypes are one step away from production. We need your financial support to start creating our hand-crafted bamboo sunglasses.
What Makes PANDA special.
Bamboo is a green alternative to environmentally hazardous plastics and metal sunglasses. Its environmental benefits arise out of its ability to grow in a sustainable manner without the need for fertilizers, pesticides, or much water. It is more moisture resistant and more stable than traditional woods such as Oak. Bamboo is quickly becoming one of the most important plants in the world.
All PANDA sunglasses are individually handcrafted to ensure superior quality. The attention to detail creates a final product that is not only stylish but also guaranteed to last for a lifetime. We offer a 100% lifetime warranty on all of our sunglasses and will replace any pair of glasses with defects caused by materials and workmanship.
Why We Need Your Support & What You Get
We are looking to raise $3,000. Your support will allow us to create our first run of sunglasses. All money raised will go towards creating the sunglasses. So, if you think the PANDA is a great idea, if you want a pair, if you want to own a really nice pair of sunglasses, please support! All glasses will be shipped within 20 days of a successfully funded project. FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE!
Feel free to message us (preferred) or send us an email at email@example.com.
Below are images of people wearing the glasses. It should give a better idea of how they look on people:
Unfortunately there are no photos of the Aviators – but as a point of preference the Aviator is a blend between the Master and Wayfarer.

The sunglasses measure 5.5-5.75 inches across depending on the model. In addition, we have flex hinges that allow the side pieces to go out an additional inch so they will fit every head type. We would be happy to offer exchanges until you find the perfect pair.

Any plege that is a pre-order will receive free shipping worldwide.
Our Kickstarter project ends on Dec 31, 2011. All bakers will receive a formal message on January 1, 2012 requesting which models you would like along with the best shipping address. The sunglasses will be shipped out either the first or second week of January 2012.
At this time we can not offer prescription lenses. However, just like other sunglasses you can take the frames to a eye professional to get the lenses replaced.
The sunglasses come with polarized black lenses.
