Hemp Eyewear is a start-up design company, based in Edinburgh, Scotland, which produces eyewear made from hemp.

Sam Whitten, BA in Product Design, developed the idea during his final year at Glasgow Caledonian University. By searching for the most sustainable material on earth he landed on hemp, then tried to find a product which no-one else had tried to make from hemp before and the very first edition of the Crosby model sunglasses was born.

After graduating Sam founded Hemp Eyewear in 2014 and through several successful crowd-funding campaigns he managed to fund 3 years of product development and has set up a design studio and workshop in the creative district of Leith in Edinburgh, where all the frames are handcrafted. The company has big plans for the future to sell eyewear worldwide and work has begun on developing the second hemp fashion accessory. Stay tuned!
