Paxley originates from sunny Los Angeles, California. The company began with a quest to find stylish and protective eyewear for kids. After looking everywhere for chic sunglasses that were durable and baby-safe, the company came up empty handed. After trying on many unfitting sunglasses that were not well-made, Paxley was inspired to create their own perfect pair of sunglasses for babies and kids. Paxley crafts their sunglasses using safe materials unlike many of the other children sunglass brands on the market that use questionable chemicals. Handcrafted in Italy from high-quality baby-safe materials that are BPA-free, lead-free, PVC-free, Phthalates-free and latex-free, paint-free and glue-free, Paxley produces safe eyewear for children. These sunglasses for kids are lightweight, durable, fitted and shatterproof. Sunglasses by Paxley provide UV400 level protection that meets US, European, Australian and New Zealand standards and comply with US and International certifications for safety.
