THE ACETATE

We are proud to exclusively use Japanese cellulose acetate in creating our eyewear.

This material is renowned for its exceptional hardness, extraordinary workability, and complete absence of harmful chemical components.

Cellulose acetate offers a crystal-clear transparency that allows us to create a wide range of stunning colors, fully utilizing its excellent translucency.

This unique combination of intrinsic properties makes Japanese cellulose acetate particularly suitable for producing high-quality eyewear.

Its transparency enables us to develop exclusive shades, while its extraordinary workability allows us to shape it precisely, almost like sculpting.

By choosing Japanese cellulose acetate, we aim to ensure eyewear of excellence that combines functionality, design, and superior quality.
