Our story

Hemp Eyewear was born in Glasgow. Sam Whitten researched the hemp crop during university, and found it to be among the most sustainable natural materials in the world. It's uses are almost endless, but hardly anyone knew about it! So in 2014 Sam partnered with Brad Smith and founded Hemp Eyewear.

After a successful crowdfunding campaign, the world's first hemp fibre glasses were out in the wild.

We've learned a lot over the last 3 years, and today's glasses are the result of tireless testing, refinement and experimentation. We have developed a unique process which allows us to turn organic plant fibre into solid, smooth and lightweight frames.
