Tom Stewart and Michael Charley, two San Francisco product designers want to reproduce Sunski Sunglasses that went out of production over 25 years ago. While on a surfing trip to Australia, Tom found Sunskis in a mom-‘n-pop surf shop right by the beach. A handful of pairs were out on a small sidewalk table, and they really caught his eye. They were like no sunglasses he’d seen before, so he bought the remaining pairs and wore them for the rest of his time in Australia. Needless to say, while back in SF he got so many compliments and people were asking where to buy these fab sunnies. Tom soon realized that he got the last of the stock and decided to partner up with his product design friend to re-create and add some tech improvements too. The new updated Sunskis feature polarized lenses and hand-polished polycarbonate frames.
Help support this dynamic design duo with a contribution at Kickstarter. They have already reached their funding goal of $9,800 in just three days. Anyone who pledges $30 or more will get a pair of Sunski sunglasses, and because the guys have reached their goal and the project is definitely going to be funded, the sunglasses will arrive in September!
