By choice we do not deal with sports glasses or children's glasses. Likewise the glasses of our selection, never have logos visible on the temples. It's in most cases eyewear made of cellulose acetate, titanium or steel. More rarely metal or grilamid. Most of the glasses we sell are of Italian production, but there are also glasses made in Denmark, Japan, France and China.
