Seeing Things Differently
A good pair of sunnies is as essential as a swimsuit come summer. We discovered OTIS's Eco-Acetate series recently, and we haven't taken them off since. Might be the handmade frames, Mineral Glass lenses, or stainless steel hinges. Might just be their timelessly-stylish good looks!
Born on the coast of Western Australia, the OTIS collection is just so classic and cool. Reminiscent of iconic frames from the past, but made in a futuristic sustainably-modern way. Their signature Mineral Glass is a durable alternative to traditional plastic lenses that just feels good on your face! Made from natural elements like sand and soda ash, it's scratch-resistant, endlessly recyclable, and protective too — polarized, fixed-tint lenses block 100% of harmful UVA, UVB, and HEV light.
Unlike other petroleum-based frames in the game, their Eco-Acetate frames are made from raw materials derived from cotton seed and wood pulp. They’re 100% recyclable and 100% biodegradable. At the end of the road, you can send your used frames back to OTIS for recycling.
“OTIS was founded on the surf-rich coast of Western Australia in 2000 to transcend the boundaries between style, durability, sustainability, and technical excellence. Some might call this total marketing-speak, but with the benefit of being so remote, the team is able to focus on our beliefs without too much distraction. The result is that our product can have a tighter view toward its promise and purpose that we believe people appreciate more and more. So for us to partner with the Outerknown team to share our vision is something we really enjoy, especially when we can bring like-minds together to elevate our storytelling around these principles.”
We carry a whole range of unisex styles — they look good on everybody!
