Hemp eco-friendly and renewable and can be made into practically anything. From rope to paper, hemp’s diversity is what makes it so beneficial.
For this reason, Hemp Eyewear decided to take one of the most sustainable resources on the earth and turn it into a pair of shades. Now, the world has its very first pair of hemp sunglasses.
Their journey began with a Kickstarter campaign, in which the company raised 150% of their funding goal. All together, they made over £37,000 (approx $46,000 USD).
Ever since then, Hemp Eyewear has been focusing on premium quality eyewear. Through their innovative design and unique products, the company is continuing to promote hemp as a renewable resource.

Hemp Eyewear is handmade from organic plant fiber, making their frames one of the most sustainable and innovative on the market. And since every individual plant fiber forms its own pattern, each and every product is one-of-a-kind.
As for the lenses, Hemp Eyewear uses the best of the best, Carl Zeiss. Equally important, the polarized lenses offer full 100% UV protection.
You can even swap out their lenses for your optical ones. Hemp Eyewear can fit practically any prescription lens into their frame, and they offer the following: single vision, progressive, and transitional.
With five styles to choose from, Crosby, Hamburg, Lotus, Dean, and Concord, you can find the perfect match.
If you’re one of those people that like to plant their name on everything they own, then you’ll be pleased to know that you have that option with these shades as well. In fact, each frame can hold up to 20 characters of text, which leaves enough room for a middle or last name along with your first.
From the shades themselves to the packaging, every bit of it is made from hemp. And to showcase the hemp in its different forms, each pair comes with the following:
- Handmade hemp canvas box
- Hemp fabric pouch for glasses
- Handmade hemp paper comp slip
- Recycled keyring from our hemp material
If you’re ready to ditch the plastic for sunnies that are both unique and nature-friendly, then head over to Hemp Eyewear’s website to claim you a pair, or ten.
