All about UV rays

Ki ET LA’s purpose is to design, produce and distribute durable, functional accessories for the well-being and protection of children.
Central to our role is now the concern to raise the awareness of young parents to the damaging effects of the sun and its rays to make the wearing of sunglasses and a hat a reflex action regardless of our age!

All about Blue Light

Ki ET LA has always aspired to offer quality accessories to protect children. When launching our CraZyg-Zag glasses dedicated to kids and to meet the growing trend of children using screens, it was only natural for us to offer both a SUN and a SCREEN range. As high protection remains our priority, our glasses filter up to 50% of the harmful blue light from screens, tablets and games consoles.
