Materials are something we take very seriously at VAI-KØ, that’s why we chose Grilamid BTR 600 LS as the frame material of our sunglasses. This material is made in Switzerland with green bio energy and contains 58% vegetable oil. It is famous for its exceptional heat-resistance, durability and lightness.
VAI-KØ shades are handmade in Italy. The Swiss material is first injection moulded, then the quality frames are polished, painted and shaped by hand. After that they’re assembled into fine sunglasses by hand in Northern Italy. VAI-KØ team visited the factory this Summer and we were amazed by the expertise and quality handicraft.
You want your shades to be light yet strong and durable, flexible but also sturdy. The world-class Swiss material and Italian handicraft ensure that our shades are super comfortable to wear. VAI-KØ shades keep their form, protect you from the sun and soon you’ll forget you’re wearing sunglasses.
The lenses are polarized to cut down flare and to optimize safety and performance. Polarization was first adapted to professional outdoor activity sunglasses, now this luxury feature is available to all quality-aware people. The glasses have an UVA and UVB protection of UV400 (99 to 100%).
