TIMELESS ELEGANT EYEWEAR | MADE IN ITALY

Acetate

Italy is the birthplace of eyewear. TAVAT Eyewear is proud to be manufactured in Italy by expert artisans, who build each frame from start to finish using traditional methods of manufacturing.

Mazzuchelli® Cellulose Acetate originates from cotton fibers, which gives eyewear a warm and natural hand-feel. Derived from renewable resources, acetate is non-petroleum based and hypoallergenic. Each frame is carved out of richly coloured blocks of acetate. Once assembled, it is tumbled with beach and birch wood to soften the edges. The final step is an extensive hand polishing that results in frames with deep colours and textures that cannot be duplicated with other manufacturing methods.


Nylon (Grilamid TR-90)

Grilamid TR-90 is a high quality thermoplastic material characterized by an extremely high bending strength with
a remarkably high break resistance. Its features include being shock resistant, exceptionally lightweight, flexible, and non-allergic. It is used in our advanced sunglasses because of its stability, durability and keeps its shape even under stress.


This material won’t oxidize over time or flake, nor will the frame warp when left on a hot dashboard. TAVAT recommends cold-mounting to protect the varnish.


Metal 

All of TAVAT Metal frames are made from Surgical Stainless Steel.  Qualities of stainless steel frames include light weight, low toxicity and strength; many stainless steel frames also are nickel-free and thus hypoallergenic. Stainless steel is highly lustrous, and makes a good thin and sturdy frame with strong corrosion resistance.
