Want to hear something crazy about eyewear design?
Most eyewear is designed for ONE KIND OF FACE!
There is this BIG myth that eyewear is one size fits all no matter what your nose bridge, face shape or face width is. The result - women wearing ill-fitting, uncomfortable eyewear not designed for them.
That’s where Mohala Eyewear comes in, we make inclusive eyewear and offer various nose bridges and widths to create the perfect fit for every woman.
My name is Ashley Johnson and I am the Founder of Mohala Eyewear.
Women shared with me they couldn’t wear sunglasses. That frames slid down their nose, gave them headaches and rested on cheeks.
I know that feeling of not looking like the models on TV or in magazines and using products that were not designed for me.
Women deserved better in eyewear. They deserved frames that fit and were made for each unique, valued woman.
I also wanted each pair to have a special power. And so every pair sold sends a girl to school at Room to Read.
I love seeing women bloom. Which is why I named my business Mohala Eyewear.
Mohala in the Hawaiian language means to blossom, to bloom, to shine and to be free. If Mohala frames can make you feel comfortable and confident on the outside and strong on the inside for empowering girls then mission accomplished.
To Our Dreams,
Ashley Mariko Johnson
