Vuerich B Shades x Quiksilver

Barcelona eco-eyewear brand Vuerich B and Quiksilver have come together to produce a limited collection of 50 sunglasses. The Quiksilver ‘Griffin’ has been redesigned by Vuerich B, the young Barcelona designers who create handmade frames from broken skateboards. 

Each piece of hand crafted eyewear is fitted with CR39 polarized lenses supplied by world renowned lens maker Carl Zeiss. The collaboration has been brought together by Quiksilver skate team rider Javier Mendizabal who has overseen the whole process from concept to execution.
Each pair of this extremely limited range will be completely unique, as the graphic design on each board dictates the final colour of the frames and every pair will be individually numbered and delivered with a polaroid photo of the original board from which they were made, along with history of the owner of the original board.
Quiksilver involved charity Skateistan with the project to fund the development of skate programmes for children in marginalised and developing countries. Each pair of Quiksilver x Vuerich B shades sold goes towards funding Skateistan projects, as Javier begins his work in Cambodia teaching children there how to skateboard. 

Each piece retails at £295, shop the collection here, and check out the amazing video showing off the Vuerich B studio here
