  What's in a Band? Well, we don't know about other watch bands, but our new Rise Band is fully customizable, which explains the vibrant & cool original art from our visual artists collaborations. Each band is made-to-order, which means when you purchase yours, it will be unlike any other. Made from hypoallergenic silicone and designed with liquid ceramic, which is able to absorb high resolution sublimation ink. The ink then permanently adheres to the liquid ceramic base on the Rise Band, producing a scratch resistant ceramic finish. Our bands are all one size fits all and are compatible with both the 38mm and 42mm Apple Watches....

Did you know that sunglasses, in their earliest form, were used in prehistoric times by Eskimos? The Inuit tribe invented snow goggles, which they created from flattened pieces of walrus ivory to prevent snow blindness. They wore them over their eyes to block the reflected rays of the sun on the ice and snow. These goggles were traditionally made by piercing slits into the ivory, and fit tightly around the eyes to only let light in through them.
