Chasing The Sun

For college student Vincent Ko, the moment that the first glimmers of Panda came to light was when he discovered cult brand TOMS. Inspired by their socially responsible model, the Georgetown University student and two of his friends turned their attention to eco-friendly sunglasses. “Clothing and shoes can be stand out pieces, but sunglasses are also a way of expressing yourself,” says Ko.

They posted their campaign on Kickstarter in autumn 2011 and smashed through their funding targets. After securing a spot at coveted trade show ENK in New York City, Panda caught the attention of three women who worked for Nordstrom. Within three months of completing the Kickstarter project, Panda was displayed in Nordstrom showrooms.

Today, Panda are recognised for their adventurous designs that use eco-friendly, lightweight bamboo material. The company has expanded from five to upwards of 25 designs including prescription sunglasses and bamboo watches that offer a unique blend of sustainable development and timeless style using a conscious supply chain at every step of the way.
