AKILA is an independent eyewear brand from Los Angeles focused on handmade, limited-run eyewear.

Constructed from malleable acetate with stainless steel cores, AKILA frames have long-lasting durability without sacrificing comfort or style.

We are advocates of sustainability and craft our eyewear from eco-friendly acetate, optical grade recycled lenses, and plastic-free biodegradable packaging.

All AKILA sunglasses are designed in Los Angeles and handcrafted to last a lifetime. Each pair is made from the most sustainable materials available and optical grade lenses with 100% UVA/UVB protection.


AKILA is beholden to no one. We exercise complete independence in what we create and who we collaborate with, to bring you the best experience possible.

AKILA’s Research & Development lab pushes the limit of what’s possible with eyewear through innovative design and experimentation.


It's no secret that cellulose acetate is our favorite material to work with. The material's inherent warmth, adjustability, and vibrance of color make acetate the ideal frame material. Combined with stainless steel hardware and barrel hinges for long-lasting durability.

Our optical-quality nylon lenses that are less prone to breakage and provide near perfect optical quality. All AKILA lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays to keep your eyes fully protected.
