We are committed to being as sustainable as possible and have a responsibility to the environment when we choose which woods we use to make our glasses, because of this all of our eyewear is made using sustainable and ethically grown hardwoods from plantations that adhere to the FSC regulations.
All of our sunglasses are handmade with precision and a dedication to quality, with all their elements coming from different countries around the world to form the final handcrafted end product. We use Bamboo, Ebony wood, Sandalwood, Zebra wood, RoseWood & Maple Wood.
Our cotton acetate is a special kind of natural ‘plastic’ made from cotton cellulose and wood pulp. It is very strong when compared to normal oil based plastics, in fact cellulose is the main structural component of wood and is what makes trees so strong, meaning our glasses are both high impact resistant and resilient.
The material is biodegradable unlike traditional plastics while it is also hypoallergenic so perfect for those that may suffer from allergic reactions towards some types of plastic.
In line with our commitment to try and be as environmental as possible with our designs we chose to use cotton acetate to form the tips on some of our glasses arms due to its strength and natural properties when compared to traditional plastics, our future models may be made whole from cotton cellulose acetate.
