A Look at Acetate Eyewear

There are so many reasons to choose acetate eyewear. Not only is acetate durable, comfortable, hypoallergenic, and resistant to temperature change, it’s also renewable. Cellulose acetate is a plant-based, renewable material, so your eco-conscience can rest easy.

Acetate vs. Plastic

They may look similar, but acetate and plastic are very different materials. A few of the key differences between acetate and plastic include:

  • Both materials are affordable, but plastic can be more difficult to work with;
  • Acetate’s manufacturing process makes it easy to embed colors and patterns into the frame, rather than painting them on or applying decals as with plastic frames;
  • Plastic frames are very difficult to adjust while acetate frames are easy to adjust.

Strong + Comfortable

Finding a pair of glasses you can wear all day, comfortably, is harder than it sounds. Acetate is not only one of the strongest and most durable materials for eyewear, but it’s also lightweight and easy to wear. Acetate is also easily adjusted to ensure great fit which is essential to comfort—plastic eyewear cannot be adjusted.

Sustainable + Stylish

You can feel good about choosing acetate eyewear because it is made from renewable, organic material. You can feel even better about choosing acetate eyewear when you realize you will never have to sacrifice style because acetate frames come in as many colors, patterns, and designs as you can imagine.
