The Origin Story
WHY: Each year, automobiles produce 290 million waste tires in the U.S. alone. Let’s support re-purposing tire waste into cool products.
Great for kids 6 – 10 years old, these fun frames are made from 100% recycled tire rubber. That makes them water-resistant, ultra lightweight, and super flexible. Comes in a multi-purpose sunglass/pencil case with crayon and rubber sunglass strap.

Frames made of 100% recycled tires. Water-resistant. Ultra-light. Flexible.
PACKAGING: Comes with a pencil case and eco-crayon. Parafina packaging is much more than a box to protect your sunglasses. It is a symbol of the Parafina Social Project. Every year Parafina donates 5% of profits to help build schools for underprivileged children in the small city of Asunción, Paraguay.
“Parafina is a transformative lifestyle brand with a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear in eco-friendly materials at a revolutionary price while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. We live by our tagline, “See Beyond Trash” This experimental ethos is what makes us who we are. Through constant experimentation with materials, design, and manufacturing techniques, Parafina Co. aims to reinvent the eyewear market and reintroduce consumers to products that are thoughtfully designed and carefully crafted.
If you are not familiar with Parafina, their business philosophy is rooted in the concept of Giving. It all started in 2014 when founders Alfonso de Luján and Samuel Soria befriended children in a village in Paraguay and found they had a very difficult access to education. Wanting to help, they created Parafina, a company that would finance education programs with every pair of eyewear sold along with other social activities.”
