After many material experiments, a folded structure was finally discovered and developed further. Structured leather with its high-density strength was proven to be suitable for the frame of glasses. The leather structure, thanks to its flexibility, comfortably fits the human face as well. Being ergonomically designed is an important consideration when designing eyewear.


‘Leather Spectacles’ can be also considered a novel approach in making glasses by bringing leather’s own texture quality to eyewear, rather than using conventional materials like plastic or steel for the frame.
