Canopy is an eyewear brand brewed from two parts adventure, one part rebellion and a heavy dash of nostalgic style. Our gorgeous handcrafted sunglasses are built to adorn the faces of the brave through all the agony and ecstasy that accompany a life worth living.
At the heart of everything we do is a passion to adventure and to explore. We’ve hiked on glaciers and hunted for plane wrecks. We’ve ridden and we’ve wrecked motorcycles in Asia and Europe and Africa. We’ve driven the US from east coast to west coast, and we’ve driven back again. And in doing all of this we’ve grown to realise that adventure and rebellion mean different things to different people. It’s not defined by what you’ve done, or where you’ve been, but by how you dream. We created Canopy for people like us. People who rebel against the boring, mundane and mass-produced, and aspire for something more exciting and more meaningful.
Canopy offers refined yet wildly unique sunglasses, and we hope our brand can inspire you to find your own adventure. If you’d like to share any of your stories, get in touch.
Each pair of Canopy sunglasses is crafted by hand, and is as elegantly unique as the sustainably-sourced wood that gives birth to it. It’s this wood that makes Canopy what it is. Wood is strong, beautiful, and renewable. It feels good to touch and even to smell. The richness of this natural material is what makes Canopy different. It sets us apart from the masses who pray to a plastic god.
Every single pair of Canopy sunglasses is expertly fitted with polarised lenses to reduce glare and provide a clean, crisp and beautiful view of the world in all its glory, while full UV protection comes as standard, ensuring that your eyes are always protected, no matter what adventure you’re on.
All the world’s a jungle, and all the men and women merely explorers. We each have our time to see and be awestruck by our planet before we have to leave. But our planet is fragile. Desertification is one of the biggest challenges facing the Earth today. We rebel against this trend. To ensure that future generations can enjoy the world as much as we do today, Canopy Sunglasses plants trees in some of the world’s most threatened environments.
So far we have planted more than 500 trees in the Koulikoro region of Mali – an area that faces increasing desertification, terrible soil erosion and destruction of habitats. Planting trees helps to shield the land from the sun and sandstorms that cause this.
Every pair of Canopy sunglasses you buy helps us to support reforestation.
Here at Canopy, we believe in progress and innovation. As the world’s most popular digital currency, Bitcoin represents the torchbearer for the next generation of financial security and convenience, while extending financial participation to those who have been deemed by the traditional corporate banking world to be unworthy. As a currency that cannot be manipulated at the will and whim of powerful organisations and governments looking to line their pockets, Bitcoin offers a profound freedom in the 21st century.
For this reason, Canopy is proud to play its humble part in Bitcoin’s adoption by being the first eyewear brand in the world to integrate Bitcoin as a payment method.
