The Making of the Collection

With around 50 steps to create each frame, the production behind each piece is meticulous and intricate. It starts off with cutting natural cotton-based acetate into sheets and, depending on the style, unique colour combinations are created. They are matured for a week at a constant temperature before being cut and bent into frame and temple shapes.


Sheets of acetate

These raw parts are then put through a ‘tumbling’ phase in which they are roughed, ground, polished and shined – each step taking up to 48 hours! During the ‘tumbling’, the soon-to-be frames are placed into a container filled with beech chips and pumice stones, all with varying coarseness to achieve different effects.

When this stage is complete, the frames and temples are given an ‘ultrasonic’ wash before being cleaned and polished manually. Finally, and with great attention to detail, they are delicately assembled. Any plastic waste generated during the cutting of the frames is carefully collected and recycled.
