“Joplins was born in 2016 with the aim of developing a unique handmade sunglasses brand made of responsible materials such as bamboo, recycled wood, recycled wood with cotton, and bio-based acetate.
To provide the best possible experience, we designed our responsible frames with the new generation of Polarized lenses that have nine layers of protection (two layers scratch-resistant, two layers shock-resistance, four layers of UV400 protection (maximum UV protection) and one main layer of polarization).
They offer guaranteed maximum UV ray protection and are anti-glare. Plus, all of our lenses have a lifetime guarantee in case of breakage.” (Rafael Dutra)
Purpose & Mission
“Our main purpose is to promote a healthier and more ecologically responsible lifestyle. Our vision is to develop an eco-friendly eyewear business that may support the transformation of the status quo – regular damaging metal and plastic sunglasses frames – to eco-friendly responsible, lightweight, resistant and biodegradable frames.” (Rafael Dutra)
