James Ay - Glance Havana
Exclusive to Pantechnicon
Danish designed sunglasses handcrafted from fully plant based material, reused hinges and recycled packaging. The fully plant based acetate Mazzucchelli M49 combines cellulose acetate and a plasticizer from natural resources. Cellulose is a structural protein in plants, and the other components derive from cotton seeds and wood fibres - making it 100% biodegradable. 90% of the material is converted into natural gasses after only 115 days. The remaining share is converted into water and biomass.
The sleeve is made from recycled leather and the white cleaning cloth is made from old plastic bottles.
Lens category 2 & 3: The sunglasses provide a medium (Gradient brown) and high (All other colours) level of sun glare reduction and UV protection.
James Ay is a universe of eco-friendly sunglasses founded on the premise that every time you put on a pair, you are in a moment where the sun lightens your heart and frees your mind. This simple idea is what fuels our creativity and guides us in the pursuit of a happy life. To extend our knowledge of what constitutes such a life, we tell stories about interesting people which found their own way to a happy life.
