SHADES BORN ON A RIVER
Our story starts along the Green River, running from Eastern Utah to the mighty Colorado River. This is where we spend our summers.
As we float down the lazy river we retrieve trash and treasure from the river bottom. Sunglasses and driftwood are two of our favorite finds. I can't begin to count how many pairs of Ray Bans and Oakleys we've collected over the years (and empty beer cans).
In 2020 it finally hit us...
Combine the beauty and density of wood with the style and functionality of sunglasses to create a pair of shades.... that float.
So we got to work. We found that bamboo is a highly renewable resource that is also lightweight and strong – PERFECT for sunglasses. I designed a simple pair of floating shades and added a colorful polarized UV400 lens with a flexible hinge. I found a manufacturer and the first pair were born.
In 2020 we made 100 pairs to "test the water". The reviews were overwhelmingly positive and we sold out within a few weeks. We officially launched Eastern Outer in 2021 with our floating bamboo shades and have since added new styles and ski goggles.
Eastern Outer is a family-owned business headquartered in Utah. We are a small team that loves the outdoors and designing products to support our lifestyle.
We also love collaborating with great brands and people we meet on our journey. If you are a photographer, writer, blogger, or influencer and interested in collaborating, please reach out.
