Since its founding in 2012, Westward Leaning has grown to be one of the world's leading sunglasses brands.
Westward Leaning is a California-based brand that is passionate about making chic, luxurious, slick, and colorful glasses. We are beloved by our cult following of tastemakers the world over. The fusion of fashion and philanthropy is core to our identity. We incorporate unique materials into each pair of glasses that represent our commitment to human achievement; our eyewear is equally beautiful and meaningful.
We love design and spend a crazy amount of time developing each shape to ensure they're the most universal fit and flattering for all. While our collection has grown from our original wayfarer, we still believe that classic shapes deserve an update. We also know that once our fans find their perfect glasses they want them in every color, so unlike most eyewear companies we have a wide range of options in every style.
Each pair of Westward Leaning sunglasses carries its own unique story. At Westward Leaning’s San Francisco studio, our team of artisans and jewelers handcraft each pair of sunglasses using traditional techniques perfected over thousands of years. They cut, weave, sew, and sand the frames’ unique accent materials before they are inlaid in our frames by hand. Every single component of our sunglasses and unique packaging is subject to our rigorous quality control. From our home to yours: at Westward Leaning we believe the special touches make all the difference.
