We feel honoured to work with brands that are committed to sustainable and ethical practices, and whose products are handmade and carry a real identity. Latin American designers don’t simply want to sell, they aspire to have a lasting and positive impact on their communities

Our Westward Leaning Lynx 04 Sunglasses have a cat-eye frame in polished crystal acetate inspired by the Lynx constellation discovered in the 17th century, named after the feline. They feature grey tinted shatterproof lenses available with or without polarization, a gold wire core, and a signature Lunar Marble side inlay. Each pair is designed in San Francisco and handcrafted in Japan.

10% of proceeds from each pair of Lynx 04 sunglasses are donated to Reporters Without Borders, whose mission inspired the tinted and translucent materials of Westward Leaning sunglasses, as a reminder that is important to see what is happening on the inside.

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.
