Maho’s frame designs and colorways are inspired by our travels to the great cities and natural landscapes of the world.


Rather than chasing trends, we design classic, comfortable frames with ultra-premium materials and superior functionality in mind. 


Our frames are all handmade in a family-run factory with plant-based cellulose acetate plastic and Italian stainless steel and 24K gold hardware. 


Maho is a product of life in the Caribbean and Gulf Coast and our search for the perfect shades for endless summers. We believe life is too short to compromise on some things -- travel, good food, friends, family, and enjoying the outdoors.


After paying our dues as an interior designer and a corporate lawyer, we moved to the Virgin Islands to live our dream of spending every spare moment on the beach, in a boat, or in the water.

While spending thousands of hours on the crystal-clear Caribbean sea, our dissatisfaction with the status quo of mass-produced, expensive eyewear of questionable quality from the major brands crystallized into a business plan to produce highly functional, simple, beautiful handmade shades at a reasonable price.

We’ve since moved back to the white sands of the Gulf Coast, where we continue to expand our line of handmade, limited-edition polarized shades backed by a lifetime warranty. Our fast-growing community of customers and retailers has given our brand life beyond what we ever expected, and we can’t wait to show you what’s next.



 Inspired by the classic Nordic style and architecture of Stockholm, Sweden, this is the perfect frame for cosmopolitan adventuring, hiding an alter ego, or high-class vigilante justice.


Nine out of ten gauchos agree this frame makes you look like a total badass, and that tenth gaucho was just peanut butter and jealous.


This universally flattering style is made for those who enjoy sipping fine wines while listening to 70's heavy metal and skydiving.
