PARED EYEWEAR is the creation of founder and creative director Samantha Stevenson and her partner Edward Baker. In 2011, Samantha’s design skills, coupled with Edward’s strong background in both fashion and retail industries, led the duo to set about creating a challenger brand in the global eyewear market while based in Sydney, Australia.
Pared eyewear components are chosen with a long life span in mind.
FRAMES – The frame is handmade using high quality 6mm acetates. Pared use a number of quality suppliers with core acetates from DAICEL and Mazzucelli. Acetate is lightweight, flexible & hypo allergenic. The properties of acetate allow it to retain a vibrant pigment in many different shades and combinations.
LENSES – Pared offers a selection of both solid, gradient & mirror CR39 lenses. They use high quality Japanese lens suppliers as well as Carl Zeiss optics. The lenses are lightweight, shatterproof and scratch resistant with a great clarity of vision. Cr39 lenses have superior heat and chemical resistance. All pared lenses meet the strictest Australian & NZ standards as well as International standards. The lenses offer UV400 protection and 100% UVA & UVB protection.
METAL DETAIL & HINGES – All metal is either titanium (known for its strength and durability whilst being very light) or staineless steel. Both nickel free & hypo allergenic.
SCREWS – We use OBE German rubber dipped screws to ensure a strong and durable hinge connection for long term wear.
WARRANTY – Pared pride themselves on a lovely product made with care and attention to detail. They offer a custom pared case & pouch to protect your glasses as well as a 1 year warranty against manufacturing faults. We also offer a repair service for our glasses.
