Changing The Way You See The World
Small Seeds Have A Big Impact
Panda Sunglasses delivers an ecologically sustainable product line with a contemporary aesthetic to a new generation of globally-conscious consumers. We aspire to synthesize modern fashion designs with intentional sourcing and thoughtful manufacturing practices. The concept of "fashion with a purpose" was a cornerstone of our founding philosophy, and it remains central to the work we do today.
We know that our company will only ever be as strong as the roots we cultivate within our community. We've had our ear to the ground ever since our launch product's initial crowdfunding success on Kickstarter in 2012, and we've worked tirelessly along the way to ensure we remain in sync with the values of the folks who gave us our start.

Open Your Eyes, The World Is Waiting
Countless individuals have contributed their creative energy, sustainable know-how, and fashion expertise to our growth and expansion. In 2016, new ownership relocated our headquarters from Washington D.C. to Washington State. The majestic nature and eco-friendly culture of the Pacific Northwest is the perfect environment to further cultivate the next phase of Panda's evolution.
Leigh and Kali, both outdoor enthusiasts cursed with inferior eyesight, have brought a deep passion for travel and natural exploration to Panda Sunglasses along with a newly revitalized entrepreneurial driving force. This transition has injected Panda's culture with a healthy dose of wanderlust paired with renewed vigor for ecologically conscious consumerism.
Our vision is global, but we focus on local communities through our Gift of Vision and Gift of Education initiatives. Our mission is to connect the dots between intention and impact; from the farmers that harvest our sustainable Mosu Bamboo all the way to the growing network of Panda affiliates scanning new horizons through our lenses.
Beyond sunglasses, our lightweight and durable bamboo watches are stunning in both their style and functionality. The hand-crafted nature of our products resonate visually and ethically, whether you're backpacking roads in strange lands or embarking on adventures closer to home.
Put on a pair of Panda Sunglasses, and expand your vision of the world.
Look Good. Do Good. Wear Panda.
