BREAKING THE MOLD

BREAKING THE MOLD

EXPERTLY CRAFTED | CONSCIOUSLY PRODUCED

Handcrafted at small-scale factories in Italy, the intricate designs of Saint Owen are executed by skilled artisans with unmatchable expertise.  By partnering with family owned and operated businesses, we are also able to deliver small batch runs and offer uniquely limited edition pieces.  

DETAILS THAT DEFINE | PREMIUM CONSTRUCTION

Meticulous in the design and construction of each pair, Saint Owen sources material that will stand the test of time while supporting the exceptional craftsmanship of our product.  We aim to reduce waste by building forever pieces; frames which are built to last.    

MATERIALS THAT MATTER | FINE TUNED BY HAND

We source premium plant-based acetate, an environmentally-friendly resource which is also easily pliable and allows customization for each unique face shape. Our Italian Acetate is a synthetic compound derived from the acetylation of a plant substance called cellulose. The cellulose is then spun into tiny durable fibers which form acetate. Characteristics of this material include strength and customizability when it comes to shaping and color processing for limited edition assortments. 

 

LENSES THAT PROTECT | QUALITY UNMATCHED

CR-39 and nylon lenses deliver optimal clarity and provide full-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. These lenses maintain quality of vision while also providing lightweight comfort.  We apply an anti-reflective coating to further reduce glare and ensure visual ease.
