Los Angeles-based brand POLITE WORLDWIDE is furthering its emphasis on creative and sustainable luxury with its new TERRA sunglasses.

In partnership with Los Angeles-based independent eyewear brand, AKILA, the TERRA sunglasses feature a biodegradable acetate construction. Instead of using plastic, the frame’s bio-acetate body is constructed from wood and cotton pulp. Additionally, using acetate enhances the product’s environmental equity as it is crafted from hand-cut sheets instead of machine molds.

Featuring a square frame, the sunglasses come in ivory marble, blue and black colorways. Other details include 100$ UVA/UVB protection, 5-barrel hinges with steel temple cores and cork leather cases.

Check out the gallery above for a look at the new shades. Retailing for $150 USD, the TERRA sunglasses are available now online.
