Ever break your sunglasses?


We have too. A lot.

Ombraz were invented out of necessity. In 2012, Ombraz Co-founder, Jensen Brehm, was on a camel safari in the Thar Desert when someone sat on his sunnies, breaking off the sidearms. Attaching twine to both hinges, he Mcgyvered a fix, and the idea was born. They worked so well, the twine was replaced with a leather cord and Jensen wore his sidearm-less sunnies for the rest of college.

Jensen and Nikolai were friends in college, at the University of Redlands. After graduating in 2014, the two teamed up in October 2016 to bring Ombraz to market.

Ombraz Shade Project

20 trees are planted for every pair of Ombraz sold.

Why Trees?


No other organism on earth provides more environmental and social benefits than trees. By planting trees we are rehabilitating ecosystems, promoting biodiversity, restoring healthy top-soils, combating desertification, controlling flooding and storm water run-off, helping coral reefs, combating sea level rise, regulating water cycles, purifying the air and providing sustenance & economic opportunities for local communities.

Who Plants the Trees?


We plant our trees through our partners at Eden Reforestation Projects, a non-profit that has established native tree nurseries in Madagascar, Indonesia, Nepal and Haiti. Eden Projects employs local farmers to propagate, plant and protect native trees. When you buy a pair of Ombraz, we donate a portion of the proceeds to Eden Projects which funds the planting of 20 trees.

Fifty trees can provide one local worker with a full day of employment. By employing locals to plant and protect trees in these nations, Eden is able to bring families out of poverty.
