- Made mainly from cotton, this material is one of the best for frames. It is valued for its longevity and flexibility. It is also sustainable and created by traditional methods. The selected acetate has to be stored 6-12 months before it can be worked with, much like wood. Big brands and manufacturers often use die casting for their frames, a process that takes just a few seconds and produces glasses you can find anywhere on the world. These frames are very hard to fit to the individual conditions of the wearer because the plastic does not bend. Color is applied only to the surface and therefore cannot reach the depth of color of cellulose acetate.
One can compare the two materials to plastic and leather shoes: both variants are possible. The wearer decides which one is more comfortable.
- Wood is at the same time a very old and rediscovered material for glasses. It is a challenge to fashion glasses out of wood that are comfortable and durable at the same time. If it succeeds, the wearer is rewarded with a light and natural fit. One has to take a little care - wood breathes and changes over time. But that is just what makes this material so special and interesting. Not to mention that wood is of course a natural and therefore sustainable material. Even glasses made of recycled skateboards are an exciting subject for us..
- Although a relatively new material, it’s already hard to imagine the optical world without it. We are constantly looking all over the world for the best titanium glasses for we are convinced of the superior qualities of the material: antiallergic and light as a feather at the same time. The highest stability and a fascinating feel result in a great material.
- One of the oldest and most distinguished materials for glasses. Most popular in the 50s and 60s it was at one time almost entirely replaced by the allegedly more modern stainless steel. Today it has a strong comeback as a timeless classic. No wonder, for its qualities are excellent: very light and antiallergic with an unmistakable pattern. A real natural product. Especially valued are the tiny, natural enclosures of limestone which make this material very unique indeed.
