A retro-inspired and refined style, Barstow are contemporary classics from eyewear experts Monokel. They feature rounded frames, a curved bridge with indented detail beneath and a slight curve leading into the arms. Environmentally-friendly in production and manufacture, this pair is crafted by hand from premium plant-based acetate. First used for eyewear in the 1940s because it is strong, lightweight and flexible, the non-petroleum based plastic is made from natural cotton and wood fibers, both renewable materials. Available in an extensive range of colour combinations, there is a Barstow style for everyone. A unisex style, Blue and Crystal styles feature solid grey lenses, Light Havana with blue gradient lenses, Havana and Clear Pink feature gradient grey lenses and Matte Black have solid orange lenses. All black frames are made with recycled acetate. Providing expert defence against the sun, Barstow feature 100% UV protection Carl Zeiss Vision lenses, introduced in 2011 to provide sharper vision than regular lenses. They include hinges made from stainless steel and Teflon covered hinge screws. They come with a protective case and cleaning cloth, presented in a cardboard box.

Based in Stockholm, Monokel Eyewear is a unisex sunglass label specialising in sustainable design. They use premium plant based acetate and all frames are expertly handcrafted with extreme attention to detail and care, a process that takes over three months. Their lenses are made by Carl Zeiss Vision. The brand is underpinned by an ethos of simplicity and functionalism and continually driven by curiosity and creative expression.
