There’s a first time for everything. Just like the collaboration between designer Christian Wijnants and Yuma Labs where we are giving a new dimension into the fashion world of sunglasses.
In this limited edition, we launched the world's first sunglasses made from recycled acrylic. The acrylic is made from 30% consumer waste and 70% pre-consumer waste, the factory waste. The sunglasses are made from recycled material and are completely recyclable as well after their usage.
This co-creation between the creative team of Christian Wijnants and Yuma Labs, is one of the 20 unique collabs under the name of A/Part, the initiative following the reopening of the Momu. It shows the fashion of eye-shades through a different lens.
Yuma Labs produces sustainable eyewear, under the brand’s own label and in collaboration with fashion houses all over the world, following the principle of circularity. Thanks to the use of waste, we maximize our efforts to create a closed loop where a product loses as little value as possible. If the sunglasses wear out after years of enjoyment, you can return them free of charge. Afterwards, they will be recycled again, staying away from landfills. Yuma Labs wants to send a clear message of sustainability. The collaboration with Christian Wijnants turned out to be an ideal match to transform this mission into a fashionable story.
With this unique collaboration, we hope to spark the conversation about circularity and offer an alternative, far away from excess and fast-consumption.
