West End’s Holloway Eyewear launches online store
Browsing the latest designs by Holloway Eyewear used to mean popping down to their West End warehouse, while the team handcraft limited edition specs and the sweet scent of BlackStar’s iced coffee wafts over.
Now with its new online store, you can order a pair of Holloway’s recycled timber sunglasses from home, without burning any fossil fuels.
Inspired by home habitats of the Sunshine Coast’s surf scene and Mount Glorious’ rainforests, local lads Martin and Raffaele reformat skateboards, broken furniture, instruments and used timber into high-quality, beautifully designed eyewear.
Committed to raising awareness about the devastating drawbacks of mass manufacturing, and shaping a long-term sustainable future, the boys are hoping their innovative handcrafted spectacle designs will inspire others to restore, reuse and give back to the environment.
