The ISLA frame is made from Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), a type of plastic found in beverage containers and textiles. At Parafina we recycle the PET that comes from uncontrolled landfills to prevent it from reaching the sea. The ISLA sunglasses are characterised by the fact that they are lightweight and water resistant. The lenses we use for the ISLA model (made of polycarbonate) have UV 400 protection (cat. 3) and are polarised, i.e. they reduce glare, optical stress and offer better contrast.
Parafina donates 5% of their income to their social project: #ParafinaSocialProject. This project gives access to school to primary school kids from a small neighborhood of Asunción, Paraguay.
