_O3 : Hand Polishing

 

Why : Polishing our handmade spectacles yields a lustrous shine revealing the qualities of the premium Italian acetate. Any barrelling or assembly marks are further removed by hand polishing each of our frame fronts.

What : The polish is applied to the rotary buffing wheel between each polishing cycle. Once properly pregnated, the frame is buffed against the wheel by skilled makers. This is a delicate stage for our handmade glasses therefore much skill and experience is required.
