Termite Eyewear is the name that two Ravensbourne Design Alumnae, designers Natalie Finch and Patricia Williams, gave to a joint project they started while studying at Ravensbourne. Stylish and sustainable, their creations showcase the best of British design. Coolhunting.com believes that Termite Eyewear is a creative venture that will become a fashion icon of the future.
The famous style and fashion site offers a very enthusiastic presentation for them: “Termite Eyewear now makes eyewear that's both stylish and sustainable. The latter is indeed not its sole selling point, as their creative frames focus on both design and materials (laser-cut then hand-worked wood that's been reclaimed or recycled) while showing just how wearable and youthful the timeless material can be, and how it's a striking alternative to acetate. And as a plus, each frame is made to order in England”.
The creators add "We started Termite, honestly, at the beginning to challenge our design skills with materials and manufacturing processes that we had never worked with before and produce a product that we would both want to buy as a consumer - quirky design, fun and not so serious, with a strong grounding to the UK and sustainable design. I don't think either of us thought it would actually go this far, but now we are excited to see where this journey will take us!"
Thank you, Natalie and Patricia, for transforming your Ravensbourne experience into a creativity highlight!
