Company Summary

Aframes is a cause driven eyewear brand that donates a portion of each sale to our non profit partner Helen Keller International to help fund the distribution of vitamin A supplements in developing countries. Vitamin A deficiency is the number one cause of childhood blindness. We want to help. Along with our cause, we are dedicated to creating high-quality, stylish eyewear. Aframes is focused on selling to the best eyewear and apparel boutiques.

    Wes Stoody

    In his senior year at Eastern Michigan University, Wes decided to start Aframes. He could not believe most Americans did not know about vitamin A deficiency and supplementation. To his surprise, he became consumed with the desire to not only help distribute supplements, but to also build an eyewear brand that is respected throughout the world for its quality and style.

    Project Manager

    During Cole’s time as a student-athlete at Eastern Michigan University he had the opportunity to turn into a very driven and competitive person. As a computer information systems major with an interest in style and aesthetics he found himself feeling right at home being part of Aframes. Coffee fuels him, technology intrigues him, and the Aframes Eyewear cause inspires him.

    Mike Maravilla
    Director of Media

    Mike honed his craft for digital story-telling in design, photography and video as the owner of Unscene Media Group (UMG) and soon after started Selfless to encourage others to give back more proactively, organically and creatively. After reaching out to AFrames Eyewear for Selfless, he was so inspired that AFrames became more than a cause - it became a part of his life.
