Maiyet + Warby Parker
The new collaboration between Warby Parker and Maiyet—announced last week—marks a pretty awesome marriage between two powerhouse social enterprises. They’ve launched a new sunglasses shape, called Bird, which is available in three new colors and has a pretty great ‘60s sensibility. As beautiful as the glasses are, the generous spirit behind the collaboration is what’s most appealing. Consistent with the rest of Warby Parker’s products, a pair of eyeglasses is donated to a person in need for each one sold. Meanwhile, in honor of the collaboration, Maiyet is making a generous donation to Nest, their nonprofit partner that creates opportunities for small-scale artisans to get access to global markets.
