Before there were sunglasses that we know, the Innuits up in the Far North were constructing their own type of sunglasses from local materials to protect their eyes from the blinding glare of snow. Over the years eyewear designers have created ‘mod’ sunglasses based upon the Innuit Look or ijaaks as they called them.
These are perfect for a day at the beach or on the snow, but not to bike, drive or do anything in as they do not have visibility all around. But you want to be cool at some party, wear them and it would be interesting to hear what people say, it certainly will draw attention!
One of the few creators of the Far North Eye Protection Look is iJaak on Etsy, with his Sungoggles look.
