MATERIAL WE USE
Whether with our eco-friendly wood, ethically-sourced buffalo horn and bamboo, Italian acetate and more, we believe our customers deserve only the finest materials we can get our hands on.
By scouring the globe for products that are both environmentally friendly and high quality, we are able to provide a product we know our customers and our planet will be proud of.
We believe that far too many companies neglect where and how their products are sourced, which can have a negative impact on the environment in addition to customer experience. We also think not enough companies put customer experience and social issues at the forefront of their organization’s agenda. This is precisely why we choose to be different.
Here are the only things we focus on just as much as design.
Eyewear made using Finest sustainable natural material including wood, rich cellulose acetate, horn and titanium, and other environment-friendly material, Handmade exclusively in our workshops around the world with German Design.
