Confinement has been fine for me, although I got bored at times.
A few days later, my sunglasses case started falling apart. It gave me a great opportunity to try out the product of this Geneva-based company.
AgentSpécial designs upcycled fashion and decor accessories, repurposed from unused production overruns of packaging material rolls destined for landfill : The Doypack®, that are hand-woven by unprivileged Filipina women.
The Doypack® is more commonly known as the juices or puree packaging. So yes, my sunglasses case does not only contain my sunglasses, but also the nutritional value of a small pack of orange juice.
This makes the product so unique. There're so many different collections that can fit any style, it feels great being able to choose from such a diverse selection.
The product feels good in general. I am personally a tad skeptical with the magnetic snap inside the case, as I need to pay a bit more attention to ensure that it snaps properly and won't reopen right away.
It's also not water-proof, as the threads are not too tightly woven. Therefore, even though you can easily dry the case with a cloth, your sunglasses will still get splashed on if you decide to jump into the water with the case.
This case can easily fit in any bag.
It's lighter than my old sunglasses case, and more sturdy than my other sunglasses drawstring pouch.
Which means that if I put my sunglasses on the front pocket of my backpack and falls on my butt while walking down a slippery path during the hike, the likelihood of my crashing my sunglasses will be really low.
When I first receive the product by post, my first impression was the strong smell of cigarette that came from the case that I couldn't get rid of. I contacted AgentSpécial and immediately got a friendly and detailed reply from them. Apparently the mailer envelope seems to cause the problems, even though neither of us know for sure. I was offered to choose either to receive a full reimbursement, or get a product replacement.
Of course I chose to replace my product.
I like the product so far and the customer service has been exceptional.
And that's AngentSpécial for you folks! Now let me go and get myself some natural vitamin D with my sunglasses on.
