I’m sort of addicted to sunglasses as you may have noticed, and I love the original and /or retro styles when I can get them. I’ve been sporting some vintage ‘big eyed’ pink sunnies from the 80s for much of the summer, but the visibility in them is pretty terrible.

The idea for 30poulets camera straps came when the creator was living in Paris, 30poulets noticed all these tourists with their huge cameras started looking all the same. With the rising in popularity of digital cameras, 30poulets wanted to color this…
