The CHILDE eyewear collection is designed in Byron Bay and hand made in Italy by boutique, family owned, optical manufacturers.

CHILDE use sustainable, eco-friendly and bio-degradable materials wherever we can.

The CHILDE Eyewear collection is defined by 2 distinct eco-sensitive frame materials and design aesthetics.

CHILDE Hand Made Bio Acetate Eyewear - Crafted from premium Mazzuchelli M49 bio-acetate which is made from organic compounds of wood and cotton pulp fibres. Built to last a lifetime as eyewear but is also 100% bio-degradable under controlled industrial composting conditions of International standard ISO 14855.

M49 Bio-Acetate is 100% eco-friendly, 100% bio-degradable and 100% recyclable.

Our CHILDE WiLDe plant based Sunglasses frames are made from a plant based grilamid polymer made from 61% renewable resources. This polymer is petrochemical free and dramatically reduces carbon emissions.

To compliment our eco conscious frames we now use plant based bio lenses that are light, scratch resistant and provide premium optical clarity.

The Italians are renowned for their craft engineering. Tooling eyewear has been a specialty over the past millennium.

The Italian culture and design combined with our Australian style and passion for music and art provide the recipe for CHILDE eyewear.

We have worked with our design and manufacturing team across 3 global brands over the last 25 years.

This experience and knowledge has defined our creative design concepts to deliver sunglass products featuring unique and classic style with exceptional fit and comfort at premium Italian quality.
