Lumete is devoted to creating innovative, fine-quality eyewear and eyewear accessories.

Lumete’s frames are designed and crafted for the discerning and confident cosmopolitan woman who seeks unique pieces as a means to express her individuality. Lumete’s handmade sunglasses combine sculptural detail, symbolic ornamentation and ultra-feminity with an avant-garde edge. The collection features five styles in four colorways each, incorporating richly-hued acetates with imbued patterns and layers, Swarovski crystals, custom hardware, intricate etching and painting, and flattering gradient tinted lenses. 

Aiming to elevate the importance of sunglasses as the ultimate accessory, founders Clara Herrera and Barbara Warren have launched Lumete as a refreshing, independent alternative to designer brands that license out their logo-driven eyewear lines to optical conglomerates. The difference shows in the uniqueness of Lumete designs, the comfortable fit, and the quality of the materials and craftsmanship.

Lumete proves its love of eyewear not only with its artfully designed frames but also with its unprecedented offering of stylish companion pieces. Each pair of Lumetes comes with an ensemble of accessories to keep and care for your sunglasses, including: signature hard clutch case, lumete locket (a chic eyewear holding necklace), soft pouch case, and microfiber lens cloth, all packed in a satin drawstring gift bag called “the Lumete treasure bag.”

The five styles in Lumete’s eclectic collection symbolize the various stages of a journey toward illumination. 
Attic Safari stands for curiosity and discovery. It seeks to invoke the feeling of entering a dusty attic and marveling at forgotten heirlooms and memory-steeped artifacts. 

Dramolete was inspired by the image of a sun-drunk butterfly fluttering into wakefulness. It represents the moment when inspiration becomes action. Oummaa symbolizes the swirling of the individual imagination with the creative force. Wanderling embodies the experience of the journey itself, as the explorer searches earth and sky in the quest for knowledge. Ulula represents self-knowledge. Inspired by the bird of wisdom, the frame evokes an owl on her throne, contemplating the world.
