We only work with factories that share our values of quality and integrity. It’s quite simple: if the factory ain’t right, the product ain’t good.
When deciding who to collaborate with, we always look at level of experience, technical abilities and quality control, as well as social and environmental practises, transparency and fair pricing. We’ve also chosen not to work with any factory we can’t visit.
We’re currently working with seven manufacturers, three of which are located in Northern Italy and the other four in Shenzhen – the two best places for eyewear production in the world. Our raw material suppliers are also just around the corner from both locations, so there’s no need to ship materials around the world.
Most importantly, we’ve become pretty tight with our partners. We visit each factory regularly and have built a strong and transparent relationship with each one of them, which we believe shines through in the consistent quality of our product.
