Happy Sunglasses Day!

Although the origins of Sunglasses Day are unknown, the history of sunglasses stretches back to prehistoric era Inuit people. They used walrus ivory to create sun goggles, which blocked out the powerful rays of sun that reflected off the snow and ice. In 14th century China, judges used eyewear made of smoke-coloured quartz to mask their emotions. Modern sunglasses as we know them today were first marketed by entrepreneur Sam Foster on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in the 1930’s. And on the eve of World War II, a little company called Ray Ban began producing anti-glare sunglasses for pilots. “Aviators” became the first commercially successful sunglasses.
