Behind the Brand: Pala Eyewear

The eyewear brand on a mission to see the world better. 
Pala is founded on the ambition to produce high quality, long-lasting sustainable sunglasses to fund change in eye care in Africa. 
For founder, John Pritchard, the seed of the idea stemmed from travels to Africa in his earlier life and learning of the lack of access to eyecare. The empowerment that comes with a new pair of spectacles or corrective surgery is emphatic and as a solution, so simple. Pala gets to deliver lasting change, empowerment and opportunity through funding eyecare projects across Africa.
Pala use the finest, most eco-friendly materials available  expertly handcrafted in small batches. The brands' suppliers meet the highest standards of manufacturing and compliance. All direct suppliers sign a code of conduct. Pala use plant-based bio-acetate for all frames as well as more eco-friendly lenses for non-polarised frames. 
Pala's design philosophy is to make eyewear that lasts. Pala uses the very best Italian craftmanship to make their frames. Created by the Marchese family at their workshop in Northern Italy, they produce small, limited batches of frames. This process provides a more sustainable solution to manufacturing and the chance to create some unique collections.
