Founder of Duskies Eyewear, Andrew ‘Macca’ McKenzie, has always loved eyewear and fashion accessories. Two years ago he saw an opportunity in the marketplace to develop a product that was not only fashion forward but also eco-friendly using recycled and fully sustainable materials. This strong vision combined with his background in carpentry led Macca to the idea of wooden sunglasses. Duskies is a brand for the fashion forward, making sunglasses that are comfortable, strong and hardwearing, and most importantly – have minimal impact on the environment.

“Duskies is an extremely environment focused brand and has a strong vision to continue to develop the brand responsibly,” said Macca. “Duskies is proud to offer stylish and comfortable eco-eyewear that are handcrafted from sustainable materials. Inspired by nature, Duskies combine traditional craftsmanship with exceptional design.” Named after the Dusky Sounds in the South Island, where Macca spent a lot of summer holidays growing up, the brand is currently based in Havelock North, Hawkes Bay. Duskies is looking to develop a small exclusive list of stockists nationwide as well as its online offering. This summer will see the launch of the ‘Duskies Project’ where a small amount of sales will be donated to raise funds for communities around New Zealand.
