Whale: a “whale” to see the world with new eyes
What would Captain Ahab do today? How would his days pass now that even the irreducible Iceland (together with Norway and Japan), has laid down the harpoons and declared illegal whaling? Ahab would put on a pair of sunglasses and, on a lookout at the bow of a boat, would defy the cold and reverberations by whale watching to keep an eye on the white whale and all the other cetaceans.
The perfect glasses? The Whales of Quoise, of course! Because this young Italian brand, founded by entrepreneurs and consultants from different sectors, has at heart not only a new vision of eyewear but also the protection and care of the environment, the safeguarding of the future of the seas.
The start-up is making its debut with a collection of revolutionary and eco-sustainable sunglasses, made from plastic waste from the seas. Fishing nets, bottles and all the nylon found in the waters is subjected to highly innovative processes to be regenerated and return to its initial qualities.
The Econyl® nylon thus obtained not only has the same characteristics as that from virgin or petroleum sources, without any difference in quality and performance, but it is also infinitely recyclable!
Quoise’s glasses are 100% Italian, from design to production to distribution.
Lightweight, resilient, unisex, suitable for any circumstance, all Quoise glasses are recognizable by the three turquoise enamelled rivets.
The Whales, with their rounded and slightly retro, classic and timeless design, are made in three variants: in black Econyl® with blue gradient lenses; havana with turquoise-yellow gradient lenses; tuchese with smoked lenses and silver mirror.
In addition to having zero harmful impact on the seas, each pair of Quoise heals the damage already in place. For each model sold, in fact, the company donates 5 euros to non-profit organizations such as Marevivo, which have been fighting for a long time to protect our seas and our environment.
Moby Dick thanks and we with her.
