An ideology rooted in aesthetics and ethics
Walking the ethical talk Pala sunglasses are made in China in a SEDEX certified factory. Their design first approach means every pair of Pala sunglasses is stylish and functional.
Their range includes 33 different styles for men and women, with designs to suit every face and every personality.
And there’s more going on behind the frame than meets the eye.
Partnering with Care4basket, each pair Pala sunglasses come in a recycled plastic case, made by talented weavers from one of three rural communities in Bolgatanga, Upper East Ghana.
“We provide each artisan all the materials they need; they then weave the cases in their own time and return the finished product for payment. Most of our weavers enjoy weaving together – there’s a strong sense of community. Songs are sung and when their work is finished they celebrate by sharing some locally made Pito (beer!), drunk from a calabash.”
Going one step further, the boxes your sunglasses come housed in are made using FSC Certified materials and the paperwork from recycled paper stock plus, £1.00 from every delivery is put towards offsetting the CO2.
