The reason why
Last year, we decided to take a crazy bet : to offer Solar glasses made in France for less than 100 €. This year, based on your feedback (more than 5,000!), we have improved everything: 80/10 acetate (the thickest and most resistant) of the Italian house Mazzucchelli, anti-reflective, anti-scratch lenses & water repellent, reinforced "5 claw" hinge, ergonomic nose pads for total comfort ... This is a V2 which promises to be very difficult to surpass!
Acetate: the best material for sunglasses
Acetate comes from a natural material: wood cellulose. Not to be confused with plastic! Acetate is perfect for eyewear.
Why ? Because it is resistant to heat and mildew, solid, hypoallergenic and tolerable by all types of skin. Ours comes from the best supplier in the world: Maison Mazzucchelli, founded in 1849.
And we favored the thickest acetate - 80/10 : the most resistant!
High performance glasses
Many of you were asking for more technical glasses - you will be served!
The great specialist in glass and optics has been solicited: the German company Zeiss. Neil Armstrong's photo on the moon? It was them! It's quite simple: they equip professional cameras and planetariums. Impossible to better.
Beyond the strict protection (100% UV protection, category 3), we have chosen an anti-reflective, anti-scratch and water repellent treatment. For all activities!
1 year of R&D to find the right shape
With the help of our workshop and its modeling tools, we reworked for one year the shape in its smallest millimeters.
The result: a shape that suits 90% of faces (male and female).
We also developed nose pads (you know, the parts that rest on the nose): this year, they are directly carved in acetate. And not stuck on the "face", as often. Result: comfort to any test. Tested and validated by the whole team! You can wear them for hours without effort and they will not fall.
Suitable for 90% of face shapes - male and female - (except for the largest faces)
Compared to the 1st version, the Sunglasses #2 is a little less wide
