Bohten eyewear is a black-owned brand that offers exquisite handmade wooden frames using reclaimed wood from Ghana, Africa. Bohtens history and future weaves simultaneously, combining a love of African nature, new-age fashion, deep-rooted culture and contemporary lifestyle. The end result is a uniquely one-of-a kind frame, with distinct look, feel and fit.
Founders Nana Boateng Osei & Nana Kwadwo Osei had a vision to shift cultural paradigms, optimize the eyewear experience and bridge the lineage between our forefathers and the generations of the future, all while conceiving the idea to produce handcrafted eyewear sourced from recycled wood found throughout Africa. They wanted to build a brand with allure that enabled them to challenge the status quo while successfully exceeding the industry standard with help from some of the world’s top brand developers, engineers and artisans.
Made by Africa, Bohten crafts functional and lightweight frames while connecting people to nature, each other, and themselves. Bohten comes equipped with a comprehensive range of frame models, by refining the design process through use of prototypes, beta testing, and 3D modeling all in their hub located in Accra, Ghana. Each frame design is collectively created, putting an importance on fit, functionality, and style. The state-of-the-art African-inspired eyewear is engineered to optimize the viewing experience while adding an effortless luxury to your gaze.
Bohten makes it a priority to incorporate sustainable practices in their operations and products and run tree planting programs in Ghana and Kenya to help turn the tide against rising deforestation. Bohten also works with the local Ghana community on eyewear education and accessibility and provide employment opportunities to combat some of the highest youth unemployment levels in the world.
