Plant-based specs from Praia Eyewear

by Sharné

Last year I bought myself a new pair of glasses. These aren’t just ordinary glasses made from petroleum-based plastics, they are made from plant-based acetate called Mazzucchelli Cellulose!

About Praia Eyewear

Praia Eyewear is a Cape Town based small business specialising in premium quality handcrafted sunglasses using italian sourced Mazzucchelli Cellulose Acetate and UV400 polarized lenses.

Their sunglass range is inspired by the sunny coastal regions that they have visited; Clifton, Algarve and Portofino and more!

Their sunglasses frames is such good quality that I can use them for my prescription lenses. I chose the Clifton in Crystal, a crystal clear frame which is perfect as I wanted a frame that wouldn’t dominate my face as I have to wear glasses every day, all day! I’ve kept the sunglass lenses so I can reuse the frames in the future.

1% of Praia Eyewear’s profits go towards support environmental nonprofits dedicated to cleaning and protecting our beloved oceans.

Where to buy?

I bought my glasses from Vision View at Lifestyle on Kloof, but you can buy all their sunglasses on the Praia Eyewear online shop.
