Bio and recycled glasses

Here you'll find responsibly made frames in both bio and recycled acetate. The difference? Bio acetate is produced using bio-based plasticisers — made from renewable sources — instead of oil-based ones. Recycled acetate is made from pre-consumer waste — off-cuts from production that are collected and made into new frames.

Responsibly made frames

Bio acetate is like regular acetate, except it's mixed with bio-based plasticisers — made from renewable sources — instead of oil-based ones. It’s recyclable and biodegradable, too. We’re increasing production of bio acetate frames each season.

You'll also find frames made from recycled acetate, here. The difference? Recycled acetate is made from pre-consumer waste — off-cuts from production that are melted down, formed into new acetate sheets and cut into frames.
