Jelly Fantastico


Shades for Shelters® - Each pair sold we donate enough money to feed a shelter dog for an entire day.

Jelly Fantastico

In honor of our first rescue dog, Madame Jelly Fantastico, a Jack Russell Terrier with a fearless zest for life. Her tastes were as bold as her attitude and she could almost always be seen wearing something audacious.

She was picked up from the streets in a state of ill health, she also bore the mark of her unknown past, a large, mysterious scar on her back leg. Jelly was found as a stray and spent almost a year in the shelter before my wife adopted her. Yet, Jelly's spirit was unbroken, her resilient and adventurous spirit reflected in her love for long walks and hikes in the forest, and her fondness for chasing after a frisbee.

Jelly also played an integral role in helping our other shelter dogs acclimate to our home, serving as a calm and steady presence amidst their transition. Jelly lived to the old age of 16 years, the Jelly Fantastico sunglasses are a colorful reminder of the incredible dog who left a lasting impression on our lives.

Biodegradable Acetate Frames

All products eventually make their way out of circulation. Big Bear frames and temples are made from a high quality bio acetate compound that will decompose far faster than traditional plastics. They're also more flexible than plastic frames, making them far more resistant to breakage.

A blast from the 1970s

Big Bear Sunglasses draw inspiration from the iconic Seiko 6105 timepiece, immortalized in the 1970s by Francis Ford Coppola's cinematic masterpiece, "Apocalypse Now." Capturing the essence of that era's adventurous spirit and timeless style, these sunglasses pay homage to the rugged, utilitarian design of the Seiko 6105.
