How MATAMATA works

November 14, 2014
MATAMATA mechanism

MATAMATA mechanism

Buy One Give One. Always. 

So, here is how MATAMATA program works:

Step 1: We collect your orders, write down the number of pairs sold and save it in our file. Every pair sold will be in 1:1 ratio with what will be donated.

Step 2: We wait until certain bulk quantity deemed sufficient for donation.

For example – Primary school A has 500 students who complaint about eyesight problems, and most of them don’t have the initiative to wear corrective (glasses). In this case, 500 pair of Wakatobi frames sold is the magic number to activate MATAMATA.

Another example – Or, we could go with much less. When we encounter a special case such as Mr. Maruf’s, we won’t hesitate to run MATAMATA to individuals. Without having to wait to certain quantities. What matters are these people get access to a better eye care service.

Step 3: We collaborate with our trusted partner in optical business to execute MATAMATA. Our partner will perform eye examination to target recipients and transfer the prescription to us. We will take it from there.

Step 4: We process the optical frames donated BY YOU. Please note that these frames would not be the same product as the one you bought. They may not be as fashionable, but they will surely serve the purpose.

Step 5: We distribute the finished products together at one time. Along with necessary documentation.

Then we go back to Step 1.


And so on.


Have a blast weekend,

Team Wakatobi

Wakatobi: The Origin

November 11, 2014


Wakatobi is a brand for the modern soul. It is more than just an eyewear. It is a lifestyle.

The name Wakatobi came from our deepest love to our birthplace, Indonesia, the largest archipelago on earth. We are very proud of the abundance of exotic and beautiful places on our land.


Wakatobi itself is an acronym of group of islands in Southeast Sulawesi region which forms the archipelago:



Tomia, and


It is famed as world’s best diving spot with its extraordinary marine biodiversity. A pleasure that all divers seek.

Those facts bring us to the philosophy that life is truly beautiful and should be enjoyed through each individual’s eyes, and helping people to get there is our vision.

We also believe that shopping for the right glasses should not be that difficult and expensive. We want to re-create the consumers experience in buying quality eyewear without having them to spend too much time and money.

Because for us, all that matters is that you look good and feel good in what you wear.

Keep checking on us regularly. We are approaching Pre-Launch session and we have plenty of surprises in store for you!


With love,

Team Wakatobi

Because simply, we believe that every individual deserves to enjoy the gift of sight. And together we can make an impact to make it possible.

How serious do we take this issue on eye health? Let us share our first hand experience on the importance of a proper vision correction.

What is Wakatobi?

November 4, 2014
coming soon wktb

In Wakatobi, we strive to follow this mantra: Look good. Do good. Feel good.

Our goal is to fuse the functional usage of eyewear as an instrument to correct vision problem and as a part of fashion statement. More importantly we want to achieve it in an easy, pleasant, and fun way as possible! The conventional way in buying eyewear can be a hassle. Optical shops normally carry hundreds of item for you to choose for (good luck with that), all with their variations of prices and models. Here, we narrowed down your options and present you only with the best, hip, and elegant style of eyewears you can find out there. What’s more, they all come in ONE PRICE. So, there’s no need to worry about which one fits your pocket- you only need to worry about which one fits your face.
