We are Nomad Eyewear and we're bored of boring sunglasses.

We’re doing things differently to other sunglass brands. We’re creating bright, fun, polarised, lightweight & durable sunglasses made with plastic ocean waste.

Yes, you read that correctly, our sunnies are made with plastic bottles collected from the ocean!

Nomad Eyewear wasn’t created the traditional way with a solid business plan, a bank manager and investors. In fact, we still don’t have a “proper" business plan, we’ve never met our bank manager and we remain proudly independent. 

The idea came after a trip to Cape Verde where our founders, Idana and Tom, witnessed a crazy amount of plastic pollution washed up a long the beach.

On the same trip Tom lost his pair of Oakleys. Reluctant to purchase another $300 pair of shades, they decided to research sunglass manufacturing and find a solution to two problems:

1. Excessive plastic waste filling the oceans.

2. Insanely expensive sunglasses. 

2 years later, Nomad Eyewear was born. The perfect solution to overly expensive sunglasses and a way of removing plastic from our oceans. 

In addition to using sustainable materials to manufacture our (dope af) shades, we’re also planting two trees for every pair of sunglasses sold. Helping to restoring the natural habitats and forests lost due to the bushfires.

We have worked hard to ensure all of our products are shipped using zero single-use plastic. Your sunglasses safely arrive wrapped in a recycled cardboard alternative to bubblewrap. And the shipping bag is made from compostable materials, so once you’re rocking your new shades, throw the bag in your food waste and it will be worm food in 3 months! Even our invoices are printed on recycled paper.

Without a doubt, the best shades I've ever owned! Love the colour, love the durability, love the comfort and love they're made from recycled plastic! The perfect pair of beach shades!

Our core values

Sustainability

Nomads are made from recycled materials, using eco-friendly shipping solutions and are 100% carbon offset. Do good. Feel good. Look good.

affordability

Why pay $100's for designer shades when you can have the same quality in a pair of Nomads! Designer quality without the designer price tag.

functional(ability?)

Designed for performance while keeping style front and centre. Our shades can handle any adventure and make you look ridiculously good while you're crushing it.

"

At last a sunglass company that cares about the environment but also cares about style. I own 6 pairs of Nomads and always look forward to their new releases. Love the bright colours! The Blueberry Muffin is AMAZING!
