See the world better

For every pair of sunglasses sold, Pala give back to eye-care programmes across Africa. We aim to support long-term change by providing grants to vision centres, dispensaries and training programmes through our charity partner, Vision Action.

Better for the planet

More eco-friendly frames and lenses, a case made from recycled plastic waste, a soft bag from recycled PET bottles. Packaging fully recyclable. Vegan and cruelty-free.

Frame craft

Our design philosophy is to make eyewear that lasts. Buy better, buy less. Pala uses the very best Italian craftmanship to make our frames. Created by the Marchese family at their workshop in Northern Italy, we produce small, limited batches of frames. A more sustainable solution to manufacturing and the chance to create some unique collections.

We open the doors of their workshop so you can see how your frames are carefully designed and built to last.
