Eye wear Fashion History 1

Eye wear Fashion History 1

Where in eye wear fashion history  do you think the first sunglasses came from? If I said they were made out of necessity by an Eskimo what would you say? It should not surprise you really as we experience how they feel every time we go skiing  or have a fall of snow followed by a sunny day.

There was no plastic or acetate in the prehistoric times.Eskimo`s will have hunted with spears made of flint and bone. Imagine the eureka moment! The Eskimo frustrated by the glare from the sun takes a piece of bone he strikes it therefore causing a slit and carving out the marrow he ties it around his face. Suddenly the brightness is dimmed!

Our first sunglasses are created.

eskimo snow shades

Middle Ages Eye wear fashion history

They are a long way from the modern sun glass and sun reader offered by us in our IZIPIZI range but without that Eskimo where would we be?

Where to next? Well our eyes deteriorate rapidly even today. In the middle ages where candlelight was the only medium with which to read in the dark, they deteriorated even faster.

If you were aged 45 or over and were lucky enough to still be alive your eyesight was shot!

The Clergy who lived in the monasteries of the time were therefore particularly effected as they wrote many of the manuscripts often by candle light.

Salvino Degli Armati is said to be the inventor of the first properly made spectacles. These were rivet spectacles made from steel or any pliable metal and held together by rivets. They must have been so uncomfortable to wear. He was a member of the clergy and lived and worked in the monasteries of the day. Well enough history for now. Please check in on our second part when we will once again be looking at the history of eye wear.

eyewear in the middle ages

In the meantime take a look at our sister website Funkyreaders that has a large selection of European reading glasses sunglasses and sun reading glasses . We guarantee they are not made from rivets. They therefore will be more comfortable than Senor Armati`s- no not senor Armani!!

Check in on how things continued to develop.

Ciao for now!
