The Italian leather used to create these bags is also eco-friendly
Lumete is a New York based independent eyewear brand for women, by women. Lumete's innovative handmade sunglasses are characterized by their sculptural detail and unexpected temple shapes. In addition to their creative use of fine, richly colored acetates, Lumete sunglasses stand out due to their striking symbolic ornamentation. The name Lumete is derived from lumen, meaning: light, and amulet, meaning: a precious object used for protection and luck. Inspired by Alchemy and Gnosticism, Lumete seeks to instill a sense of wonder into every piece they make.
