Matt tortoise – an overview of all sunglasses

Right up until the 1970s, tortoiseshell - the so-called tortoise - was harvested from hawksbill sea turtles. The spotted amber tones are typical for classic sunglasses and still represent timeless elegance today. Even if the extraction of tortoiseshell has been outlawed, the unique pattern is still being imitated for the designs of trendy sunglasses. Tortoise is the perfect combination of a timeless sense of style mixed with modern chic. Due to its muted colors, the wild pattern integrates effortlessly with every outfit and emphasizes certain features. The warm shade of amber matches every complexion and every hair color. The matt finish gives the tortoise sunglasses their personalized and casual touch. Find out here how the color comes across and how you can best show off your Kapten & Son sunglasses.
