Danish designed sunglasses handcrafted from fully plant based material, reused hinges and recycled packaging. The fully plant based acetate Mazzucchelli M49 combines cellulose acetate and a plasticizer from natural resources. Cellulose is a structural protein in plants, and the other components derive from cotton seeds and wood fibres - making it 100% biodegradable. 90% of the material is converted into natural gasses after only 115 days. The remaining share is converted into water and biomass.
The sunglasses are made from 100% biodegradable acetate from Mazzucchelli in Italy. The hinges are from OBE with a special rubber coating, making the friction and longevity perfect. They are made from 60% reused metal chips from old hinges. The sun lenses are polyamide (PA) with an anti-reflection coating and a special UV filter with protection up to 400 nm and index 1.5.
The sleeve is made from recycled leather and the white cleaning cloth is made from old plastic bottles.
Lens category 2 & 3: The sunglasses provide a medium (Gradient brown) and high (All other colours) level of sun glare reduction and UV protection.
