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.

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.


Designed in Scotland

Our collection is proudly designed by Danielle Rattray in our studio in the North of Scotland. With an international reputation and extensive knowledge in product design, Danielle brings a new calibre to our frames with a clear and definitive design language that compliments each of our sense heightening lens tints. Each frame is designed to deliver a superior fit, finish and balance. Constructed with high 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.
