SmartBuyGlasses launches Arise Collective x Jukurrpa Designs, Aboriginal Art Eyewear Designed to Give Back
The collection features nine bold styles with vibrant hues and stand-out modern frames. Each pattern tells an original story and connects the customer to the specific Aboriginal Artist who created the design. With prices starting at 150 USD, each limited-edition pair includes a case, a printed cleaning cloth that features the full original artwork, and a card that tells you a brief story about the artwork on the frame.
The collaboration is driven by Arise Collective’s mission to give back with extraordinary partners. Julia Ritchie, Merchandising Manager at SmartBuyGlasses, notes “SmartBuyGlasses is thrilled to be the first online distributor for Arise Collective x Jukurrpa Designs. With both brands dedicated to giving back to the community and people in need, it is the perfect partnership. We are proud that 10% of all sales go directly back to the artists and their community.”
Customers can add unique style to their wardrobe with the high-quality, purpose-driven designs from Jukurrpa Designs. “The spectacles are designed using Australian Aboriginal Artwork from Warlukurlangu Artists of Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community located 3 hours outside Alice Springs, Australia. Respecting each artwork, only the best materials are used in production,” notes Murray O’Keeffe, the designer from Jukurrpa Designs.
