About this product line:

Introducing AARN brand’s “Nylaarn” Bio-Based Nylon Polymer Sunglasses, designed, engineered, and manufactured by Aaron Panone in Massachusetts, USA. These sunglasses do not come from an eyewear factory: Nylaarn sunglasses frames are made using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques from a proprietary formulation of bio-based renewable raw materials, with less negative environmental impact than traditional crude-oil based plastics. The patent pending “post-aero” frame design is fast, lightweight, and comfortable, featuring a unique screwless titanium hinge that was developed by Aaron over the last 8 years. The temples are designed to flex and hold snugly, preventing slippage during even the most demanding of activity levels, and lenses come “fully-loaded” with deluxe features honed from over a decade of eyewear development experience - From the base material, to color enhancement, optical attributes, and premium coatings, these lenses are designed for a broad range of applications, from rigorous sports use to everyday wear. A closed-loop end-of-life recycling program ensures that this item will never end up in a landfill or on a barge to another country.
