AKILA SUNGLASSES | LEGACY BLACK
AKILA is an independent eyewear brand based in Los Angeles focused on handmade unisex sunglasses at anti-industry pricing.
AKILA Eyewear is designed to last & handcrafted from eco-friendly plant-based cellulose acetate.
Cellulose acetate is a natural bioplastic made from the fibers of cotton or wood pulp. This compound is then mixed with various colored dyes, block casted, then sliced into sheets or chipped into tiny color pellets. The final product is biodegradable and renewable.
Legacy mixes eyewear principles, fusing classic handcrafted artisanry with modern materials to create a timeless frame with an aesthetic functionality.
Each pair is handmade in limited numbers to maintain precision and quality that will look great and last for years.
We plant a tree for each pair of glasses sold on our website in partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects.
