Bahagoni announced today that their new Bamboo Sunglasses have been selected as one of Elle Decoration Magazine’s 2013 Eco Picks. The eyewear was selected from a pool of lifestyle products during the April 2013 Eco Design Fair in Shanghai. The Fair was a two-day event intended to promote eco friendly, sustainable design products in Shanghai and raise awareness of environmental sustainability in China.
Bamboo Blues are Bahagoni’s first foray into eyewear and were launched this year. The company carried on its mission to use environmentally friendly bamboo in their products, using the same lightweight bamboo sourced from Zhejiang Province, China that they do in all of their bamboo design. The sunglasses are designed with quality and comfort in mind. Made of lightweight bamboo and durable imitation wood acetate featuring polarized lenses, there are 6 bright colors to choose from.
The Bahagoni team is proud of the achievement and hopeful about what the exposure could do to increase awareness of sustainable products and manufacturing. They say that it’s encouraging to see so many people excited about bamboo products and to see bamboo recognized as a material for things we use everyday. It’s a gorgeous material that they are trying to integrate into world fashion and lifestyle.
The people at Bahagoni believe that the growth cycle of bamboo is more in line with the rapid development of both SE Asia and the rest of the world. All of the bamboo for the new Sunglasses Bamboo is environmentally sourced from mature bamboo forests, which allows for full growth and avoids damage to the animals dependent upon new growth for nutrition. These are all small, privately owned forests, so it is in the best interest of their owners to ensure that they are protected and farmed responsibly.
