  • 3 Reasons we love our acetate frames

    • Hypoallergenic

      Acetate is a hypoallergenic material, which means it’s very rare for it to cause allergic reactions. Your frames will be in contact with your face all through the day, so it’s important to find a material that doesn’t irritate your skin.

    • Environmentally friendly

      Acetate is a type of plastic made from renewable plant material. Other types of plastic are petroleum based which means they aren’t as good for the environment as acetate glasses.

    • Variety of Styles for men and women

      Acetate is a really adaptable material. We stock acetate frames in all shapes and sizes, from browlines to cat eyes. It’s easy to find a frame that suits your style.

FAQ

What are acetate glasses?

Acetate glasses are eyeglasses with frames made out of the popular material acetate. This material is perfect for eyeglass frames because it’s light, durable and hypoallergenic (so it won’t irritate your skin). Acetate glasses can be made in practically any color imaginable, from bright hues to classic tortoiseshell.

Are acetate eyeglass frames heavy?

Acetate is actually one of the lighter materials commonly used to make eyeglass frames. Metal frames are likely to be slightly heavier than acetate ones, while plastic shades are usually as lightweight as acetate.

What is the difference between acetate and plastic eyeglass frames?

Acetate is a type of nylon-based plastic, so acetate frames are similar to plastic ones in a lot of ways. Acetate can best be described as an exceptionally strong, hypoallergenic and flexible type of plastic, making it ideal for eyeglass frames you can wear comfortably all day long.

What are the most durable eyeglass frames?

Acetate is one of the most durable materials used to make eyeglass frames, and it’s lightweight and hypoallergenic too! Another durable material for eyeglasses is metal, particularly titanium.

How are acetate glasses made?

Acetate is produced in sheets with natural colors added between layers, kind of like a puff pastry. The sheets are then dried over several weeks. After drying and polishing, eyeglass frames can be carefully cut and finished by expert technicians. After the extra features are added, like lenses and temple arms, the frame is ready for use!

Are acetate frames hypoallergenic?

Acetate is famous for its hypoallergenic properties.This means that it’s very unlikely to cause an allergic reaction or irritation to your skin, making it a perfect material for eyeglasses.
