When creating our first collection of sunglasses SunchaserSoul, we had in mind to follow Bask in the sun values which put priority to quality and local production. That’s why we chose to collaborate with the oldest manufacturer in Portugal who offers unique expertise and traditional know-how. When you open the door of this family manufacture in the South of Porto, it is a true travel back in time. Since 1964, their experienced hands mix with accuracy the acetate seeds which give robustness and unique colors to our sunglasses. From cut to polish, from mix of colors to assembly, every step is manually done and highlights the authentic characteristic of our models, produced in limited quantity.
Sticking to our ethical and environmentally friendly approach, the production is 100% European. Fabrics are coming from renowned Italian producers. Cellulose acetate is coming from Mazzucchelli house, based in Castiglione Olona since 1849. Sel Optica manufactures, founded in 1983, are engaged in an eco-friendly approach and only use solar power to made our light and resistant polycarbonate glasses. Since 1947, Visottica is the inescapable specialist in hinges and screws of high precision. The cork cases are coming for forests in Portugal.
Through this collection SunchaserSoul, we reinforce our conscious approach of humbly allying hedonism to a responsible and durable fashion.
