Materials & Sustainability

At 180EYEWEAR, our commitment to sustainability and premium quality serves as the foundation of our brand philosophy. From the earliest stages of material selection to the meticulous craftsmanship of each eyewear piece, we prioritise ethics, quality and sustainability to deliver products that align with our customers' values.


Material Selection: Our eyewear frames are a testament to our dedication to sustainability. We have carefully chosen Premium Acetate as the primary material for crafting our frames. Premium Acetate is a remarkable material derived from natural cellulose, offering a sustainable alternative to conventional petroleum-based plastics. By opting for this eco-friendly material, we are making a conscious choice to reduce our reliance on non-renewable resources and minimise our environmental footprint.


Craftsmanship and Design: The heart of our eyewear lies in the artisanal craftsmanship that goes into each piece. Our frames are skillfully handcrafted, combining the versatility of Premium Acetate with the expertise of our artisans. The fusion of design and ethics is also evident in our partnership with German OBE Hinges. These hinges, known for their reliability and sleek design, not only enhance the aesthetics of our eyewear but also contribute to its functionality. This meticulous approach to design ensures that our products reflect our eco-conscious ethos.


Advanced Lens Technology: In addition to sustainable frames, our commitment to quality extends to our lenses. Our CR39 lenses feature a hard scratch-resistant coating, providing exceptional clarity and durability. These lenses go beyond mere aesthetics, offering advanced UV protection to prioritise the health of your eyes. Classified as Category 3 lenses, they provide 100% UVA/UVB protection, shielding your eyes from harmful rays while maintaining unparalleled clarity to preserve your vision.


A Fusion of Values and Style: The journey from material selection to the final product at 180EYEWEAR is a harmonious blend of sustainability, ethics, and unwavering quality. Our eyewear not only elevates your personal style but also empowers you to make a positive impact on the environment. By choosing our products, you are endorsing a commitment to a more sustainable future without compromising on style or quality.


At 180EYEWEAR, we believe that eyewear can be more than just a fashion statement. It can be a symbol of values, sustainability, and uncompromising quality. With Premium Acetate frames, German OBE Hinges, and advanced CR39 lenses, we have created a collection that embodies our core principles. Join us in embracing a brighter, more sustainable, future-focused 180° vision, one frame at a time.
