DESIGN PROCESS + LIMITED RUNS

Maho frames are all designed in-house to reflect timeless vintage Coastal style while delivering uncompromising performance and comfort. Every style is inspired by classic eyewear of the 1940s through 1990s and updated with modern materials, bold colors, and comfort enhancements.

We are driven by constant experimentation and innovation, so we continually introduce new frames and colorways and temporarily retire old ones every season. Not only is every frame a one-of-a-kind handmade piece, every style is also part of a limited edition run. 

ZYL ACETATE HANDMADE FRAMES

The king of eyewear materials, Zyl acetate is a high quality material derived from wood pulp and natural cotton fibers -- both renewable resources. Unlike plastic frames, Zyl’s color will not fade over time as the hue is engrained in the material rather than printed or sprayed on. It is the standard material in high-end fashion frames because the color never peels or fades. Zyl is smooth, lightweight, and best of all -- keeps the wearer from putting petroleum-based products directly on the skin.


RX FIT

Maho’s handmade Zyl acetate frames permit any sun lens to be swapped out for a prescription lens. Your local optician will always prefer to work with handmade frames, because Zyl acetate can be heated and molded to achieve a perfect fit for any face. Maho utilizes its own lab, so that you can also order prescription lenses directly through our site.

HYPOALLERGENIC

People with sensitive skin often have trouble with common eyewear made from petroleum-based plastic and low quality metals. Maho’s handmade Zyl acetate frames and stainless steel hardware are hypoallergenic -- so anyone can wear and enjoy them for a lifetime.

ITALIAN BARREL HINGES

Many sunglasses are made with spring hinges that are likely to break over loosen over time. All Maho frames are built with riveted and barreled surgical stainless steel 316L hinges for a lifetime of adventures outdoors.

ULTRAMARINE™ TRIVEX LENSES

Traditional lenses are made from polycarbonate plastic, mineral glass, or CR39 plastic. Mineral glass and CR39 can crack or shatter, making them potentially dangerous for your eyes during outdoor high-impact activities. Polycarbonate is tough and durable, but has poor clarity. Maho Ultramarine lenses utilize premium trivex, which is extremely tough, durable, and scratch resistant, but also as clear and vibrant as the human eye can perceive.

POLARIZATION

Glare fades colors, reduces detail, and causes eye strain and fatigue. Every pair of Maho sunglasses feature polarized lenses eliminate over 99% of glare, allowing you to experience the outdoors at their best.

AR COATING

All of our lenses are treated with an anti-reflective coating that reduces the light that comes through the back of the frame. Our AR coating reduces glare and increases comfort and clarity.

LIQUID REPELLENT

Sweat and water are not welcome on our lenses. Our lenses are treated with a special layer that helps repel water and oil.

COLOR ENHANCEMENT

Most sunglasses simply darken the wearer’s view. Maho lenses enhance your view by saturating the colors you naturally perceive, so you achieve better contrast and greater depth perception.

EYE HEALTH

Your eyes demand protection from exposure to the sun’s rays. Maho lenses eliminate 100% of UVA/UVB radiation, and protect against eye strain caused by glare, reflection, and distortion.

Capetown Bengals are the best

I have tried on multiple brands of sunglasses with no luck of finding ones in which I love the frames, lenses and they fit the shape of my face. Purchased these during a sale. Received in 2 days and I absolutely love them
