Owning a pair Fellow Earthlings satisfies the feel-good notion of supporting great quality, Canadian owned and one-of-kind handmade pieces. Husband and Wife team, Christopher and Sydney founded their own bespoke eyewear company after working in the industry internationally. They founded a different kind of eye wear-company, when they returned home to the east coast of Canada, in Prince Edward Island. An artful fabricator that specializes in design, prototyping, short run production and handmade frames. These glasses are hand made with love in their picturesque and inspirational seaside workshop.
You have the ability to decide your own combination of frame shape, when ordering a pair of these frames. Frame colour and finish from matte to glossy (you can mix and match the face plate and temple colour) and lens colour (if ordering sunglasses). There are 6 shapes for sunglasses and available in small or larger sizes and there are 7 optical frame shapes.

Fellow Earthlings are known internationally for producing custom eyewear. Anna Sui, is a recent designer that commissioned sunglasses by Fellow Earthlings to complement her latest fashion campaign which, graced the runways of New York. This dynamic duo also collaborated with another Canadian east coaster, fashion designer Maggi Jayne to create flower shaped sunglasses. No order is too small. Shape options are only limited by imagination.
The vibrant and colourful upcycled line of frames called RE:FE are the latest addition to the Fellow Earthling brand. These glasses are made from the combining the excess material from the cuttings of other frame shapes. No two pieces of upcycled material are alike, after they have been melted together. The result are unique colour patterns that shine. RE:FE frames are highly wearable works of art and are some of the most fun frames to order as we never know exactly what will show up.
