Banton Frameworks was born from a passion for design and manufacture. We were inspired by the UK’s manufacturing past, which was renowned for producing high quality goods that could last you a lifetime. The UK eyewear industry was once a thousand factories strong, and now only a handful remain.
Our approach to design is focussed on functional, well considered, understated aesthetics. We believe this surpasses the wasteful nature of momentary fashion.
Fusing industrial production with the skill of hand craftsmanship, we have created the a balance of processes to produce our eyewear. Our products are manufactured from the highest quality materials and made to last.
The UK’s industrious heritage inspired us to create our own production here. Redressing the balance between what is designed here and what is made here. That’s why we’ve created our own processes and honed skills that can be passed on, building a legacy for the future.
Lucy Ross and Jamie Bartlett founded Banton Frameworks in 2012.
