CR-39 sun lenses
CR-39 lenses with anti reflective coating (a thin coating applied to the surface of lenses to reduce reflection and glare). CR-39 are resistant to shattering and scratches and have a light weight feel.
OBE are a power house in the optical industry and has been so since its founding in 1904 - in particular due to their role in developing spectacle hinges. The strength of an OBE hinge is its dimensions and special rubber coating making the friction and longevity just right.
High quality italian bio acetate
Mazzucchelli — faithful to its “tradition of modernity” — has developed a new eco-friendly thermoplastic material. M49 is an innovative formula which blends cellulose acetate with a plasticizer from natural sources. The components derive from renewable sources and fuse two types of fibres; fibres from seeds (cotton) and fibres from wood (conifers and broadleaves) - making it 100% biodegradable.
