Our Brand is Travel

Maho’s frame designs and colorways are inspired by our travels to the great cities and natural landscapes of the world. Rather than chasing trends, we design classic, comfortable frames with ultra-premium materials and superior functionality in mind. Our frames are all handmade in a family-run factory with plant-based cellulose acetate plastic and Italian stainless steel and 24K gold hardware.

You shouldn’t miss a single detail, so we use cutting edge lens technology that costs up to 10x more than leading brands. Our proprietary Ultramarine™ lenses are all polarized trivex, offering ultra-light weight, impact resistance, incredible clarity and 100% UVA/UVB protection. Our lenses all have premium anti-reflective, water and oil repelling, and anti-scratch coatings.

Maho Shades Founders


Maho is a product of life in the Caribbean and Gulf Coast and our search for the perfect shades for endless summers. We believe life is too short to compromise on some things -- travel, good food, friends, family, and enjoying the outdoors.

After paying our dues as an interior designer and a corporate lawyer, we moved to the Virgin Islands to live our dream of spending every spare moment on the beach, in a boat, or in the water.

While spending thousands of hours on the crystal-clear Caribbean sea, our dissatisfaction with the status quo of mass-produced, expensive eyewear of questionable quality from the major brands crystallized into a business plan to produce highly functional, simple, beautiful handmade shades at a reasonable price.

We’ve since moved back to the white sands of the Gulf Coast, where we continue to expand our line of handmade, limited-edition polarized shades backed by a lifetime warranty. Our fast-growing community of customers and retailers has given our brand life beyond what we ever expected, and we can’t wait to show you what’s next.
