What Are Acetate Frames?
Acetate prescription sunglass frames using a unique process that turns plant fiber into plastic. During the process, we add colored powders to the surface of the material before rolling it several times, creating a uniformly colored material. To create patterns in these materials, artisans cut these different colored sheets of material into cubes and shapes and roll them together.
The result of this process is a sheet of material. These sheets can sport a huge variety of solid colors and patterns, like tortoiseshell. Once produced, these sheets are cut and formed to create frame shapes.
