Yunizon was founded in NYC by Kim and Rebecca. Kim, the designer behind Yunizon, has over 20 years experience in eyewear and has seen first hand the lack of inclusion in the industry and the fit issues associated with a “one size fits all” approach. This inspired her to develop Yunizon's unique fit. Bec, Co-Founder and self proclaimed “Outlaw”, lived and worked all over the world as an investment banker. Born with a low bridge nose, a “unique” feature in an industry dominated by one company, sunglasses constantly slipped off Bec’s nose. Yunizon recognizes the individual. Form and function.
Every Yunizon frame is designed in their New York studio to simply fit better, their proprietary fit is based on real experience, real measurements, and real people. They are the only sunglass brand to offer three widths in every style. Yunizon’s uniquely designed frames feature elongated non-slip nose pads, reduced frame curve, modified temple lengths and ultra-lightweight materials meaning you can confidently and comfortably wear your sunglasses all day. Yunizon sunglasses are the pinnacle of quality, and can take over five months to make. Every pin, hinge, and signature logo on a Yunizon frame is applied by hand and hand polished by highly trained technicians.
Yunizon uses premium cellulose acetate, a color rich material with a natural mixed base of fibers such as cotton or wood. This hypoallergenic material provides a comfortable fit and the durability for everyday wear. They use the highest quality CR-39 lenses which are lightweight, shatter-resistant, offer amazing optical clarity and 100% UVA/UVB protection. These timeless slow fashion pieces are built to last and will be a staple in your wardrobe for years to come
Yunizon is dedicated to inclusion & sustainability, and advocates for mental health awareness. Yunizon donates 5% of profits to mental health charities, National Alliance on Mental Illness and Beyond Blue.
