The Fit

You’ll love the sleek lines and tactile wood texture that make every pair unique as you. Carefully finished with triple barrel sprung hinges to give the arms flexibility and ensure a snug fit. The Athene incorporates Mazzucchelli bio acetate and wood. Cellulose acetate is made by extracting cellulose fibres from cotton or wood pulp to create a transparent paste.  This paste can then be coloured and molded into our beautiful frames. Providing an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based plastics

Everything that’s included

You’ll receive our beautiful handmade eco-cork case and Share Your Sun cleaning cloth, packaged with recycled, sustainable and compostable packaging as standard. Your pair of Birds will be so unique you’ll be hard pushed to find anything so intricate and beautiful elsewhere. Every pair brings the gift of clean and safe light to a family in central Africa through our Share Your Sun partnership with SolarAid. Look good, feel good, #shareyoursun.

Share your sun

Every pair sold brings the gift of clean and safe light to a family in central Africa through our Share Your Sun partnership with SolarAid.

598 million people in Africa alone have no access to electricity. Without electricity families have no clean source of light, leaving millions to rely on expensive and dangerous alternatives. With a solar light, everything changes. These little lamps are safe, clean and affordable. They give off hours of light in the evening so families can earn, learn and feel safe after dark. Just one lamp can transform the fortunes of an entire family and is the first step on an energy ladder to full electrification.

For each lamp this equates to:

  • 4 people reached
  • £145 saved in not having to buy fuel
  • 1006 hours of extra study time for students and children
  • 1.1 tonnes of CO2 emissions averted
  • 2 people experiencing better health
