We had an idea
It started with a road trip
We were driving through the Highlands in search of sunshine, when we came up with the idea for Tens. You might not think of sunglasses and Scotland as the perfect match, but that’s sort of the point. Developed by photographers (Marty, Tom & Kris), we thought it would be cool to take the rich, warm colours we add to our photos and apply them to real life. And so, countless rounds of prototypes and one crowdfunding campaign later, Tens came to life.Visit Store
Sunglasses by photographers.
Tens is a lens experience company. Our custom filter lenses immerse you in a world reminiscent of a distinct time, place or feeling - an experience you’ll want to revisit time and time again. Each lens is forged by our background in photography combined with optical expertise of our development team based in Lyon, France.
Our collection is proudly designed in Scotland and specifically designed to deliver a superior fit, finish and balance. Each frame is constructed with premium quality materials from Italy and handcrafted to ensure a level of craftsmanship we’re really proud of. Tens are a super wearable and durable pair of sunglasses to own.
Join the club
Established in 2014, we felt that sunglasses shouldn’t be focused on how you look whilst wearing them; more so on how everything looks through them, and the way that it makes the user feel. Since then we’ve gathered a dedicated community from all corners of the globe who pride themselves in seeing things differently.
