Why the Giveback Model?

For each frame we sell, we donate a portion of each sale towards finishing the fight against cancer and supporting under served communities in Philadelphia.  Each cause is incredibly important to the Barring team because it personally impacted each co-founder. Cody's, Eric's, and Joe's friendship developed though common interests in designing sunglasses and their love for the great city of Philadelphia.  In 2014, the unexpected common loss of family members due to cancer was the catalyst to the formation of Barring Eyewear.  The Barring team rallied together as friends and followed their passion for designing sunglasses and supporting noble causes (American Cancer Society & Rock to the Future). Thank you for taking the time to get to know our intention and please read on about us.

How do you keep your prices reasonable on high quality products and sustain a business?

Well it's quite simple. We go straight to the manufacturer, we cut out the middle man in all aspects of the supply/design chain, and market direct to consumer.  Our business strategies allow us to manufacture the highest of quality products and sell chic designs at reasonable prices.  We don't expend our resources on large scale marketing campaigns and our mark-ups are not inflated.  What you see is a great value proposition for a reasonably priced marquee product. We invite our customers to share our message and enjoy our products to the fullest!
