Archer Eyewear is an Australian family run business with big dreams. Named after our son Archer, the brand bloomed in 2018 after we grew tired of wearing expensive designer shades that were uncomfortable, easily broken and made with unnecessary plastic.
I remember buying a $300 pair of designer shades one year and I was so disappointed because they sat crooked on my face, didn't really suit me and they left me with a headache, the experience was so impersonal. We both thought, there has to be a better option here.
We curated a small collection of designs that we knew would suit the majority of people, then added all the bells and whistles designer shades offer, but without the expensive price tag. 🏷
During our design process we discovered that wood is much more sustainable and comfier than plastic sunglasses. It's also biodegradable and won't leave a lasting impact on our planet like most sunglasses sitting in landfill will.
Having children really opens your eyes to the world we live in and the world they will live in, we had to do something about it. In 2019 we partnered with eco warriors, Carbon Neutral, who plant thousands of seedlings and saplings across outback Australia's agricultural region every year. We decided that for every pair of sunglasses sold, a native tree would be planted too.
This is something that we are really proud of and we have been able to plant many trees since launching, it also makes our customers feel good about their purchase.
Our range offers stylish designs for both men and women that are equipped with polarised UV400 lenses, scratch resistant lenses, flexi hinges and comfortable wooden frames.
