A collaboration based on a shared love for exploration and the never ending stories they inspire

We teamed up with National Geographic to develop a line of the ultimate adventure eyewear.

National Geographic Partners distributes a portion of their net revenues to the National Geographic Society, an impact-driven, global nonprofit organization that uses the power of science, exploration, education, and storytelling to illuminate and protect the wonder of the world.  Karün works with natural and recycled materials provided by local entrepreneurs from Patagonia, building a circular economic model that allows them to contribute in the protection of over 400.000 hectares of pristine nature in Northern Patagonia.

Meet chilean explorer, Catalina Velasco.

Passionate researcher, submarine photographer, marine biologist and communicator. Catalina has made her purpose to bring everyone closer to the ocean from the deepest south of Chile, in Magallanes. Her foundation Mar y Ciencia is allowing people to understand the importance of having a healthy ocean and promote its conservation through different projects involving the community. No wonder National Geographic made her an explorer, from that, Catalina was able to further specialize in submarine photography and currently is being part of a leadership training program to help her inspire more people to work towards, - as she says - “A more sustainable world”.
