News: Termite Sustainable Sunglasses

Ethical eyewear experts, Termite, is a brand built on innovative design and sustainability. Lenses and hinges aside, Termite’s design work begins with recycled materials that profress to manufacture with reliable sources and environmentally friendly materials. Last week, Termite hosted an event to launch their latest collections: Metro and Barber.

The Metro collection takes its inspiration from London’s iconic tube map, playing with elements of colour, fluid lines and frame shape. Primary colours are utilised alongside raw layered edges of reclaimed Birchwood, giving an abstract and modern mechanical style. Cured edges, cut using a laser-cutting process, are reminiscent of the Circle Line, and provide a playful aesthetic.


The Barber collection experiments with ‘Old English’ heritage. Rich colour ways and textures sit amongst vintage interiors while a focus on wearability give an androgynous feel. Using Termite’s Base frame, the range is both modern, while incorporating the 50s silhouette of the past.
