Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) March 26, 2014

141 Eyewear, a Portland-based philanthropic eyewear company, will come to Vision Expo East with a rainbow of new colors for four of the ULTEM designs debuted in the company’s fall 2013 collection—the Irving, Taylor, Alder and Naito.

141 Eyewear chose the material for its light weight, high flexibility, and to provide an alternative for those who cannot wear acetate frames. To entice customers and accelerate the company’s philanthropic model, co-founders Kyle and Shu-Chu Yamaguchi added both cool and bright splashes of color to four styles:

  • Cobalt & Bekko, Noir Dust and Crimson Fawn to the Irving
  • Emerald & Bekko, Crimson Fawn, Ocean Reef, and Ruby & Bekko to the Taylor
  • Stoney Ocean and Cobalt & Bekko to the Alder
  • Indigo & Bekko, Eggplant Aquafresh, Crimson Fawn and Choco Mint to the Naito
“Our customers have responded very well to the strength, durability, light weight, and versatility of this cutting-edge material,” said 141 Eyewear co-founder Shu-Chu Yamaguchi. “We’re excited to give them even more color choices for 2014.”

141 Eyewear will display these and other styles in the exhibitor’s section of Vision Expo East from March 28-30, 2014.
