French glasses need you!
If you wear prescription glasses, you now know that the reimbursement by health insurances in France no longer exceeds 100€. At the optician, this excludes you from frames made in France. Why ? Because then you have to spend 200 or 300€ for a frame made in France.
For us, as for the French eyewear industry, it is an injustice that we are trying to repair (a little) with these 1st glasses made in France, of high quality, at less than 100€ (and even less than 90 €).
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!
An universal 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.
The workshop of grandes Maisons
Did you know that eyewear was still a French know-how of excellence?
Yet, there are only 8 workshops in operation, and that's a shame. Most large houses now produce in Italy at best, in China quite often. But, at Atelier Particulier, we are committed to defending our know-how.
We relied on a workshop from Normandy founded in the 1960s, a historical supplier of a well-known monogrammed brand. We have found all the necessary skills to make these Glasses a Haute Confection piece that you will keep for 10 years.
Dimensions Glasses : 48-20-145
