FRAME MEASUREMENT

How are they made?

Here is a basic overview of how the factory makes the handmade pieces.

  1. A slab of plastic is chosen from stock by the required color and thickness.
  2. A pattern is made and marked on the plastic slab.
  3. The frame maker cuts the shape out for the frame front using an open plated routing machine.  Care is taken to balance the eye and bridge size.
  4. The frame is smoothed of sharp edges with a file and the lens grooves are made. If any shaping needs to be done the frame is heated up to make it pliable.
  5. The frame then goes into an electric barrel for three stages of polishing. This is done with hard wood pegs, and the process takes 2 days.
  6. The frame front is then hand polished and side joints fixed. The sides, (temples) having been made by the same process, are screwed to the frame front to produce a completed frame.
