Eyeglasses: Etnia Barcelona
Etnia Barcelona is an independent brand of eyewear who has created a wide range of colors, collections and designs for everyone who wants to express him- or herself beyond the cannons imposed by momentary and passing fashion and trends. Our collection focuses on color, design, comfort, value and quality by means of the acetate colors and textures which we created in Barcelona by our design department. The Etnia acetate is produced by mixing pulverized cotton and acetone to create a paste, color is added using various pressing processes, then cured, cut and laminated, then set in molds where they are pressed into block form and aged for a period of 12 weeks. When these blocks are removed from the molds they are cut to the desired measurement. From these acetate sheets we make our plastic frame fronts and temples.
