Named after the queen of ancient Ur, Sumeria. When Paubi was found by Leonard Woolley, 4,500 years after she was buried, she was still wearing this elaborate headdress, and the entire upper portion of her body was covered in jewelry. She was found surrounded by the bodies of 74 unidentified people with unexplained deaths. When the bodies were discovered, they were all dressed in extravagant pieces of clothing, jewelry and headdresses, just like their queen but not as elaborate. It's believed that the men were soldiers or guardians because they had weapons and were placed strategically in the entrance of the tomb to defend from gravediggers and to protect the Queen. The women were thought to be her handmaids, servants or possibly her attendants that would tend to Queen Puabi’s needs in the afterlife.
Puabi is an edgy and exquisite shape designed to look amazing on all who try.
Material: Handcrafted acetate frame fused with nickel hinges and rubber tipped screws.
Lenses: 100% UV UB protection. Australia & New Zealand standard.
Care: Don’t just throw these in the bottom of your bag. Don’t leave these in a hot car; sunglasses in the heat for too long will melt. Salt water and other chemicals don’t mix, so please don’t test the theory. Don’t use clothing or coarse materials to clean the lenses, use microfiber material or hot water and a tissue to clean the lens (we've included a cleaning cloth).
