FRAME MATERIALS

CELLULOSE ACETATE

Handmade in Japan, all Alue cellulose acetate frames include core-wire temples for a fully customizable fit. Hypoallergenic, strong, lightweight and flexible, cellulose acetate is a non-petroleum based plastic made from natural cotton and wood fiber in large blocks and sheets. Frames are then cut out and then hand polished. With a wide range of transparency, rich colors and finishes each frame is sure to have its own distinct feel.
