FAQs – BambooGorilla.com.au


Are Bamboo Gorilla sunglasses polarised?

Yes, all of our sunnies have polarised lenses (except for our Itsy Bitzys which is mentioned in the product description.)

Do Bamboo Gorilla sunglasses have UV protection?

Yes, our entire range of sunnies have Catergory 3 UV400 protection (except for our Itsy Bitzys which is mentioned in the product description.)

Will the wood/bamboo feel heavy or scratchy on my face?

Contrary to how it may look, no, the wood/bamboo feels surprisingly lightweight. It is not uncomfortable or irritable in any way as it has a smooth finish especially in places where it matters ie; nose ridge and temples.

How do I know if the sunnies will fit my face?

Majority of our sunnies have spring hinges allowing for a fit on most faces. There are also measurements in the product description/or photos of each pair of sunnies.

They look fragile, will they break easily?

Our sunnies are made from natural materials and the finished product is quite durable, but like anything they must be treated with care. If they are sat on or put under too much pressure they will break just like any other pair of sunnies. They must also not be worn on top of your head or hanging off your top. They should be stored in your velvet lined, eco-friendly cork case when not worn. 

Do you ship from Australia?

Yes, we are an Aussie brand and ship right out of Melbourne, Victoria.

How long does shipping usually take?

Orders are processed and shipped out between 1-2 business days, (although most of our orders get dispatched the very same day- if within business hours). We here at Bamboo Gorilla pride ourselves in speedy dispatch, as we want you to start enjoying your sunnies straight away.

Once in the post, it can take from 2 - 4 business days to arrive at its destination inside Australia. 
Once in the Australia Postal system, it’s out of our control.

When I purchase a pair of sunglasses what does this include?

Your sunnies purchase will safely arrive at your door in a FREE soft black pouch and cleaning cloth.

If you would like the more protective, foldable, cork case, these can be purchased from our website and added to your order.


What percentage of blue light do your blue blockers block?

Our blue blockers block out 95% of harmful blue light

What portion of the electromagnetic spectrum do your blue blockers block?

Our Bamblues block the wavelength of 400 - 500 nanometers which covers the blue light part of the visible part of the spectrum. (Refer to our Blue Blockers page for more info.)

Are you blue blockers made from plastic frames as they look in the picture?

No our blue blockers just like our sunnies, have wooden frames which are FSC certified. We don't like plastic!

Can your blue blocker glasses be worn in place of sunglasses?

No. Our our blue blocker glasses do not block out UV rays and should not be worn during the daytime as they will distort other colours. They are for evening use only and give you the greatest benefit when worn after sunset (optimally 2 hours before bedtime.)
