Inspired by the vibrant colors of wood and classic styles of sunglasses, the Retrostiel shades are the perfect combination of timeless design and modern craftmanship. With solid polarization lenses, a frame of natural wood and high-end craftmanship, these shades offer designer quality features at a price affordable to everyone. 

 

We're here on kisskissbankbank to introduce our shades to you and to share them. Our goal is to produce a limited production run of these wooden sunglasses for timely delivery this fall! We hope you enjoy learning about the shades!

Our shades feature the timeless styles similar to wayfarer and aviator, updated with the latest technology in sunglasses manufacturing. Check out all the details here!

We've equipped the lenses with high-quality technology. The polycarbonate core includes a solid polarization layer, and the lenses offer 100% full-spectrum UV protection, including UVA, UVB and UV400 wavelengths.  The combination of polarization and UV protection allows for better and brighter vision without eyestrain.  They are gradient lenses with EU Category 3 - a visible light transmission rating of 10-20%.

 

 

The construction material for the frames is purely natural wood. To ensure highest sustainability, we only use woods which are NOT endangered. Also, we mainly use local timber like oak wood, walnut wood and cherry wood. Sustainability is really important to us, that's why we created a product that is as natural as possible.

We also offer sunglasses made of skateboard wood available in many vibrant colors. Special features are the multiple layers of painted maple wood - exactly the same wood which is used for the fabrication of skateboards.

Natural wood is suited perfectly for lightweight and durable design. You'll be surprised by the lightweight construction. Also, our sunglasses offer a surface feel you've never experienced before with a regular pair of sunglasses.

The elasticity of the arms provides the wearer with a universal fit that's both comfortable yet tight enough to stay on your head due to flexible spring hinges.

 

 

 

As independent entrepreneurs with new tools like kisskissbankbank, we can partner directly with our supporters to deliver all of the quality at a price that everybody can afford. With your help, we can realize a mass production, and leave behind most extremely expensive “designer” sunglasses.  Our shades embody the best of what we're all about: making things that we love to use - things that we hope you’ll love as well.

In return for your support, we’re offering ... Shades made of wood! We've limited the number of our shades that we are producing so we can keep box packing under control and deliver them to you on time.

 

À quoi servira la collecte ?

We hope you enjoyed the video. We would like to share our shades with people who share the same views and like naturalness. Every pair is as unique as the human being itself.

 

So why fund it?

 

Our competitors offer "tropical" woods like sandal wood, zebra wood, rose wood and ebony wood.

The sad truth about these fancy woods is, they are highly endangered. They are obtained from depletion and destructive exploitation. As reward for the buyer they plant a tree - in their place of residence while they destruct rare trees somewhere else.

So please if you ever encounter products made of these highly endangered woods, don't support this business.

 

If you want to act responsibly and sustainably, you will support us! We have our samples complete and our manufacturers in place.

Your support of 1000€ will be a great help to reach factory minimums to get started.

With about 3000€ we could introduce a whole new product line with our brand - wooden watches, which we would like to offer in our classic maple and walnut wood.

 

Thanks for checking out the Retrostiel shades! We can't wait to start making these incredible sunglasses so we can get them to you this fall! Cheers!
