Description
A pair of lightweight ski goggles with two pieces of dark plastic for lenses, enclosed and stitched with a border of taupe-coloured velveteen fabric. This portion is connected to an inner frame of the same fabric, closer to the face, with two pieces of light clear plastic the same shape as the lenses, with cutouts for the eyes, by thread and small pieces of black plastic tubing (0.70cm long); this creates air vents for the face and provides wearing comfort. The side guards are composed of a light metal mesh and they have a piece of black elastic attached to each side which is tied together to keep the goggles on the face.
