We know how important it is to choose your next pair of glasses very well, it is important to know about the materials, most are made of metal or plastic but this greatly limits the design and colors. In Bonoboss we are aware of this and that is why we use 100 biodegradable cotton acetate for the manufacture of polarized frames and sunglasses.
El cotton acetate It is a vegetable plastic that is hypoallergenic. It was used for the first time at the end of the decade of 1940 since the plastics used previously were fragile and not sufficiently durable.
El cotton acetate It is a plastic without petroleum base. It is made of natural fibers of cotton and wood. While petroleum products can be more expensive and harmful to the environment, cellulose acetate is made from renewable materials. Cellulose acetate for glasses is manufactured by forming layers in large blocks. Afterwards, individual parts are carefully cut, polished by hand and finally assembled in a frame.
The main difference is durability. Acetate glasses are much more durable than standard plastic. The blocks of acetate that are used are rich in colors and design, the reason is that many times and depending on the brand, these blocks are colored by hand and in craft processes. Some of which, inclusively, have embedded patterns. While standard plastic is produced by injection and must be painted with spray to achieve patterns or shine, they also tend to break more easily.
There you have it: cotton acetate is the highest quality plastic material for glasses and is used by major global reference brands to make their sunglasses and optical frames.
Fortunately, in Bonoboss we work lines made with cotton fiber. The fusion of cotton acetate, the polarized crystals of maximum protection, wooden rods of demolition and the process of manual polishing ... result in a collection of unique sunglasses that combine protection, quality and durability in an iconic product in the world of the sustainable accessories.
And what do you expect to join the revolution of sustainable accessories?
