Lead a colorful life with aboriginal glasses that give back


Let’s kick off the season with new, creative, and fun glasses! Arise Collective has partnered up with Jukurrpa Designs to bring you a collection of exclusive aboriginal glasses that give back to the community. 

Jukurrpa Designs carefully crafts people-powered eyewear inspired by Aboriginal artwork. You can indulge in colorful glasses frames that are uniquely designed and inspired by the stories of artists from a small Australian community. 

Through the one-of-a-kind, patterned glasses, you will be about to see how the artists connect with the beautiful environment around them. 

SmartBuyGlasses is excited to be the first online distributor of the glasses and is proud to give back to support and help Australian aboriginal communities. It is a great opportunity for us to follow our mission to give you trendy, statement prescription glasses and sunglasses while envisioning a better world. 

With every frame sold, Arise Collective donates 10% to the Aboriginal Artists and the Art Centre / Community. 

To give you inspiration, we’ve put together some of our favourites from the Arise Collective X Jukurrpa Designs collection just for you. 

Ovally fascinated

You’ve got to love these funky patterned glasses frames by aboriginal artist Mathessa Nampijinpa. The pattern is fun, and the oval frame is a great fit for many different face shapes. In particular, people with square faces would rock these with ease. 

If you’re looking for playful aboriginal glasses, then you’ve found the perfect pair!

Creative Cat-eye 

It is impossible not to love these sharp-edged cat-eye glasses with a cute pattern on top and clear frames on the bottom. 

This dreamy pair of glasses by Juliette Nampijinpa is a must-have! A subtle yet fun patterned frame will keep you chic all year round. The combination of quality materials, colorful patterns, and this new artistic touch will be sure to turn heads. 

Wink of Pink

Get your dancing shoes ready, because it’s time to shine in your bright new glasses! Thanks to the cat-eye frame, this pair by Kirsty Napanangka is a perfect fit for all face shapes. 

If you love a good classic frame but want to change it up with new patterns, then the pink frames are the perfect solution!

Blue like the sky

Just like the J Nampijinpa Red, you’ll love this pair by K-A Nungarrayi! With a dazzling pattern and clear bottom frame, these square frame glasses will make your eyes pop thanks to the ocean blue color

If you have a round or oval face, then you’ll suit these glasses effortlessly! Your office days can do with a little color and protection from blue light glasses.

Bring eyewear to life

If you can’t choose just one color, you can have (nearly) all! Geraldine Napurrurla has brought together three beautiful colors to honour our environment. The green reminds us of the Earth, the blue the oceans, and the red is warm like the Sun. 

Just as these three elements bring life, why not bring to life a new look with aboriginal glasses!
