Following 15 years of experience in the eyewear industry EYETRIBE was launched in 2008 by Designer and Director, Bec Bennett. EYETRIBE launched with kids eyewear brands Squids (aquatic) and Frankie Ray (fashion) collections which established themselves quickly in the marketplace and continue to thrive both domestically and internationally.
Despite a personal promise not to enter into the crowded and competitive adult eyewear market, Bec could not resist trialling some new designs with sustainable materials such as bamboo, reclaimed wood and cork that offered a more responsible approach to eyewear design.
What began with some prototypes for friends and family, soon became a more substantial collection and late in 2013, Sticks & Sparrow landed! Sticks & Sparrow is committed to utilising sustainable materials that not only minimise wastage but also provide new applications for nature`s underutilised renewable resources. Sticks & Sparrow eyewear has a strong connection to nature with a distinctly Australian tone.
Hand crafted frames and temples are made from globally sourced sustainable materials that are carefully treated with tints, stains and polishes to bring out their natural beauty and raw appeal. Plant based acetate fronts are teamed up with bamboo temples for structural strength and an extra depth of colour and contrast.
All Sticks & Sparrow frames are packaged in individual microfiber pouches and protective pressed cork hard cases with a beautiful gold fleck. Sticks & Sparrow`s lightweight, high strength frames are fitted with 100% UV protective, scratch resistant lenses to protect against nature’s harsh elements, ticking all the boxes for women with an eye for style and an environmental conscience.
