2014 is Here!

With 2014 here, many of us have welcomed it with open arms. The long lists of New Year’s resolutions have piled up: exercise more, eat healthier, give back, travel, the list goes on. At SOLO, we might not be able to manage your food intake or pay for your travel expenses, but what we can do is give you that extra push of motivation to be active.

Whether you are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or simply going on a hike with some friends, our SOLO glasses are the perfect compliment to any active look. They make a simple statement: one that says casual, practical, and stylish all at the same time. Because we are all about letting your adventurous side fly free in the wind, we have made our glasses water resistant to protect our adventure freaks, nature lovers, daredevils, or even just our accident prone individuals against whatever may be thrown their way. Our glasses are offered in polarized lenses as well, giving our customers protection against the blinding rays of the sun or better yet, from the reflective glares of the gorgeous pacific.

Even if our SOLO team can’t join you on your trip to the Caribbean, though we do accept invitations, (kidding- well kind of) we’d love to be apart of your experience through our glasses. Grab yourself a pair of SOLOs, unleash your wild side, and allow each journey you embark on to be one worth remembering. Let your SOLOs tell a story. Let them hold the memories of the unforgettable sites and people you encounter upon each adventure you take.  

Hand-woven Treasures from Guatemala

At SOLO, we believe in making an impact in our world. In addition to restoring vision, we strive to support other socially conscious efforts. We are excited to announce that we are partnering with a group of Guatemalan women to provide you with beautiful, handcrafted sunglass bags and cords. On Friday, November 29th, we are giving away these beautiful hand-woven bags and cords to our first 25 customers who purchase a pair of SOLOs.  

The group of Guatemalan artisans with whom we are working consist of several industrious women. These women have honed their weaving skills to produce beautiful products and support their families. We are thrilled to partner with them to support their efforts by paying fair wages and exposing their products to international markets. 

 

Meet Maria, pictured above. Maria specializes in crafting the multi-colored sunglass cords. Maria lives and creates her magnificent handicrafts in San Antonio Palopo, Guatemala with the group of women weavers. 

Juana, pictured above, and her family craft the sunglass bags with recycled fabrics. "Rural Guatemalan women never used to earn much from their craft, but now they're selling internationally and seeing their lives transform."  - Counterpart International

Be the first to receive these gifts this Friday by shopping the SOLO Eyewear collection HERE. The first 25 customers will also receive free shipping and gift wrapping. Support these Guatemalan Artisans and our Vision to Give today!
