We started the Sunheroes brand a few years ago with the following principle: Designing super trendy sunglasses that you can't buy from any other brand (yet)!
Either completely new, or with a nod to the trend or in colors that you see nowhere else!
All from our Dutch design kitchen: Dutch Design!
And normally priced! You still want a new pair of sunglasses or maybe a few other sunglasses every season?
Premium: the hottest designs with polarized glasses in the most original packaging! Always in Limited Edition, so it's gone!
Basic: this year's toppers but original!
Special Price: according to the trend, but in more trendy colors.
Because we keep all our profits so far in new models, there is little money left for advertising. So you really have to look for us a bit, but we hope that if you find us, you will become a fan and tell it further. Then we can make even more fun and original sunglasses!
It can be that simple.
Our original molds and glasses are produced in China. We have an office in Wenzhou that places all our production orders with carefully selected manufacturers by our colleagues there.
In this way we can design and control the entire production process from start (raw materials) to finish (shipping to NL).
What does that mean?
Constant monitoring of a safe working environment, compliance with applicable Chinese employment conditions and salary scales (no joke: these are now almost as strict as ours!).
Controlled purchasing of "green" and where possible, recycled raw materials. Phasing out of recycled plastic final packaging (which you throw away after purchase) to "biodegradable" final packaging. We are the first sunglasses manufacturer to do this!
The monitoring of compliance with environmental legislation in China is stricter than ours: for example, every factory must purify its waste water before it is discharged into the sewer. Chemical and residual waste must be demonstrably removed safely and (re) processed.
80% of the production of glasses consists of manual work: from continuous manual control of what is produced mechanically to the assembly of the glasses and their final packaging. We take samples from every production run that we test in our own lab. As an additional check, we send random samples to an independent laboratory. They test the glasses against the current European quality standard.
The above of course has its price. Only if we want to pay a fair price to the manufacturer can we expect a product that meets our requirements.
And if we didn't check everything ourselves, it might just be that we would be cheaper for "the same" glasses.
"If you see it then you understand" and vice versa of course.
We therefore ask you for a fair price.
You must also know that we are trying to be a transparent brand. Do you have questions, comments or suggestions; Do you want to visit our office, warehouse or our colleagues in China or visit a factory in China yourself? Let us know!
Rather e-mailing than calling, but both are possible.
