Since 2003 AYA Optical has offered a global platform for Indigenous artists to showcase their work, while giving back to the very communities that have inspired the brand. AYA has long supported One X One’s First Nations School Breakfast program, feeding over 700,000 breakfasts to children who would have gone without, and most recently has distributed eyewear in remote communities.

Artists who collaborate with AYA Optical are paid both a commission and royalties.
