Shades of Sustanability by Sk8

At first glance, I thought these were another version of the many versions of wayfarers out there.
On closer look, you will notice something unusual about these shades – they are obviously textured – as creator Dave de Witt, South Africa’s acclaimed skateboard ramp builder, has walked the talked on sustainability and transformed the very material of shades: Hand-crafted shades from recycled skateboards.

Yep. You read it right.
Very cool indeed.

Released in May 2012 (these have sold cross continents in Japan!), Sk8 shades propels sustainability and innovation right from Dave’s home based workshop. You can read all about the arduous skateboard-to-shades process here and if you love what you see, purchase here or here for just 150SGD.
