HOW WE MAKE THEM
FIND OUT HOW A QUALITY PRODUCT IS MADE
Our goal is to design not only glasses with an exclusive and elegant design but also functional and ergonomic.
The creation of glasses starts from the design phase, with hand-drawn sketches and 3D computer drawings. This stage is followed by the development of a prototype with 3D printing
As soon as the prototype is approved, the production phase starts by cutting the still raw eyewear from an acetate slab which will then be sanded and polished by hand.
Every production step is essential to obtain quality eyewear and made with extreme care by our team within the company.
#We Do Exactly What We Say
This is more than just a tagline. It’s a choice. “We do exactly what we say” because we respect our customers and our raw materials. The handcrafted process in Italy starts and develops thanks to the combination of different national companies that join forces to provide the best product possible. Manufacturers are essential to ensure a product standing out for its Italian style and ethics.
