glasses made to measure
We believe that the greatest expression of eyewear is tailor-made creation, since each face is unique and deserves specific care and treatment.
Each custom-made eyewear is worked by the same craftsman in buffalo horn * and customized in sizes, colors, finishes and shapes: we create the equivalent of a tailored suit for your face.
* No animal is killed for its horns, we only use industrial waste from other productions and never horns from endangered species .
We only process ethically collected hornsfrom industrial processes waste that would otherwise be reduced to fertilizer. The horn, as a natural material, follows precise processing and treatment times to guarantee its correct conservation and durability.
THE TRUE “HANDMADE”
Eyewear nowadays are processed with an industrial process that still requires constant human intervention. Our horn glasses, on the other hand, are made entirely by hand as, given the charateristics and cost of the material, the process is not easily industrialized.
After choosing the shape, colors and finishes we will create a first prototype which, once approved, we will use as the basis for your glasses in real buffalo horn. Each eyewear requires about a month to be made alone, to which the time for prototyping and design must be added.
How we will make your next glasses
Let’s meet up
In a first meeting, even online, we study the customer’s needs and choose colors, shapes, materials and finishes together.
We create a first prototype to verify the size, fit and general appeal of the glasses.
After the approval of the prototype, the definitive glasses are made, entirely by hand and following a series of delicate steps performed with meticulousness.
We cut the shape, treat the horn and smooth it properly and then proceed with the insertion of the hinges.
The last part of the process also requires your presence as the glasses are folded according to your needs and the shape of the face.
The last step is the laser engraving of the non-slip patterns and the quote or design you want on the inside or outside of the temple.
Only now the lasses are truly yours
