Cultural Pride is the feeling these glasses bring to me.  The color of Earth and Sky, with the power of Eagle. Quickly became my favorite.

    Beautiful Reading Glasses

    Posted by Allison Kutz on 2020 Dec 14th

    These readers look stunning. Perfect size for looking down at my crafting project then over the top of the frame to speak with my family. For those wondering about the width.... I have a small face and I look for descriptions and reviews discussing this when deciding on these types of purchases. In eyeglasses, I would order a petite frame. I would say these would fit almost any size face but do appear slightly wide for me but not so much as to be unattractive.

    Love Esme

    Posted by Unknown on 2020 Sep 30th

    This is the second pair of Esme readers I've purchased. They're stylish and I've received many compliments on both pairs ( different colors). I'm always looking for a good pair of readers and these glasses fit the bill!

    Beautiful and light-weight. Since I have to wear my reading glasses more often, I thought I'd splurge and get an attractive pair. Also, I like the idea of supporting these indigenous artists.

    This is my second pair. The first one the right stem became unglued to the lense. It broke my heart but I got another.

    Lovely frame, very sturdy and well-made!

    Posted by Alice, Portland, OR on 2019 Jul 31st

    This design is beautiful and is certainly deserving of its place as one of your iconic designs. The frames are very sturdy and seem like they will last for years. The carving into the resin is deep and sure, so the design cannot ever "wear off". Thank you for a truly gorgeous frame for glasses.

    Love the color!

    Love these readers! I bought them in the dark brown/lime green (which is a lot more green than the online picture).
