Recycled Sk8 Shades

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Style

Earlier this summer the team at Diamond Supply Co. introduced a pair of Recycled Skateboard Sunglasses, and now it looks as though more design companies are jumping on board with the concept.

South Africa based skateboarder Dave De Witt used recycled skateboards to construct a new pair of stylish sunglasses he likes to call “Sk8 Shades.” Over the years, Wayfarers have become one of the most popular style of shades so it comes as no surprise that De Witt utilized this particular shape along with a handful of others.  Each pair of Sk8 Shades sports a different color pattern depending on the type of skateboards that were used for construction. Check out some of the photos below showing the construction process, and purchase several different options of the sunglasses from Etsy today.
