For over 18 years, Peace Over Violence runs a Denim Day in April for Sexual Violence Awareness Month. How and why this day came about Denim, because in Italy a rape conviction was overturned because the judges stated ” the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to help him remove them, and by removing the jeans it was no longer rape but consensual sex.”
Wearing jeans-denim on Denim Day (recognized by over 20 states) is a protest against sexual assault. Since it is a Wednesday and some people cannot wear denim to work, they might be able to wear Denim Eyewear, which is why we are introducing several companies that offer Denim Eyeglasses or Sunglasses .
Endless Eyewear (Portugal) This wood eyewear company has denim side shields.
Two of our favorite denim sunglass companies are Karun and Mosevic, which both make sunwear from upcycled denim. We love it because over 3 billion denim jeans are made every year and the fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. Sustainable Fashion is important to global health.
Karun (Chile) is one of the most Innovative Eco Friendly companies in the world. They started out a sunglass collection of FSC certified wood, added in Salmon skin side shield, collaborated with Bureo for Ghost Net sunglass and now have launched Denim Sunwear, which was launched via Kickstarter in 2017.
Mosevic form the Cornwall, England area has several denim options, but our preference is the recycled denim sunglasses.
Palens Barcelona features sustainable wood eyeglasses with a denim finish.
Woodzee’s offered a denim finished wood sunglass as well .
