Acetate is an organic polymer from tree pulp and natural cotton fibers. It is stunning stuff, with a deep luster and high transparency. The higher the quality of acetate, the better the gloss and transparency. Customers who wear our eyewear describe the material as natural to the touch. Acetate is exceptionally strong, hypoallergenic and flexible. This means you can adjust the temples to fit any head perfectly.
First we etch the material into its final shape, front piece and temples. Then for 72 hours we spin the parts around with small pieces of walnut. We do that in a device that looks like a big clothes dryer. Pretty cool! This way everything is made perfectly smooth. Then the handy work begins to achieve the high gloss finish in five steps of polishing.
