AKILA is an independent eyewear brand based in Los Angeles focused on handmade unisex sunglasses at anti-industry pricing. AKILA frames are handcrafted from plant-based acetate and stainless steel with Optical Class 1 nylon lenses. Each style goes through meticulous design, engineering, and production processes to ensure top quality eyewear. Every pair of sunglasses takes over 90 days to complete and requires nearly 100 steps from start to finish. AKILA optical-quality nylon lenses are thick and scratch-resistant making them more durable, and also block 100% of UVA / UVB to keep your eyes protected for years to come.
