Acetate is hypoallergenic and lightweight. The fibre is easily adjusted to custom fits as it is less brittle than other plastics, making it versatile and durable. Colours and designs are typically painted or sprayed on conventional plastic frames, but acetate designs are made from layering blocks of cellulose making the designs more vibrant and complex.
Why not choose acetate frames for your next pair of glasses? Check out some of the styles below:
