Derived from organic cotton fibers, Acetate brings our eyewear designs to life. Our acetate fronts and temple parts are each cut from a single block of premium cellulose acetate. Our designers curate the very finest acetate from highly skilled artisans in Italy and China. Each block is selected for its strength, color, and finish. The material’s transparency allows us to create attractive styles and effects. Combined with an underlying metal frame, it also offers hybrid forms which highlight the eyewear shape. It delivers more comfort: ic! berlin coats metal temple endings with acetate for a smoother wearing experience.
