Our Westward Leaning Lynx 02 Sunglasses have a cat-eye frame in polished quartz tortoise acetate inspired by the Lynx constellation discovered in the 17th century, named after the feline. They feature rose gold mirror shatterproof lenses, a gold wire core, and a signature Black Marble side inlay. Each pair is designed in San Francisco and handcrafted in Japan.

10% of proceeds from each pair of Lynx 02 sunglasses are donated to the National Parks Foundation in support of the natural wood and stone that inspire Westward Leaning's signature side inlays.

10% To Causes Around The World

Each pair of Westward Leaning sunglasses supports an organization, such as California National Parks or Teach for America, with a 10% contribution of net income.

Handcrafted Frames

Each Westward Leaning style is handcrafted from the finest materials, such as hand-finished, plant-based, biodegradable acetate.
