Framing Waste | Our New Collaboration with Cubitts

Created with British eyewear maker Cubitts, our Frederick Redux sunglasses are created from waste chips of cellulose acetate gathered from the Cubitts workshop floor. “For years we'd been wanting to put the Cubitts waste material to use,” says Cubitts founder Tom Broughton. “The problem with cutting from sheets of acetate is you're left with 75 - 80 per cent waste, which often goes to landfill. Our mission was to put that waste to work, and to do so with a brand that shared our values, to make more than just a product, but an approach with greater impact.” 

The accompanying ikat pouch is hand kantha-stitched by women artisans in India, supported by Fair Trade cooperative Sasha, which TOAST has worked with for over ten years. They carefully select the vintage saris which form the padded inner layers, with the older generations offering help to the younger stitchers. The pouch fastens with cotton herringbone ties and, like the Frederick Redux frames, no two are the same.
