What is acetate?

Acetate glasses give a person a stylish and unique appearance.

Many of our customers actually prefer acetate frames. This is because the material allows for many different colour combinations. With other materials, like metal, however, the customer has more limited colour options.

Wood or cotton combined with cellulose largely makes up the material acetate. Consequently, the frames are more resistant to day-to-day wear and tear.

Despite these obvious advantages, many people still think that plastic frames are lower quality. This is, however, incorrect. In fact, acetate is one of the best materials because it gives you a very durable and long-lasting pair of glasses.

Which glasses manufacturers use acetate?

As already stated, acetate is a very popular material, which is why many of the largest glasses and sunglasses manufacturers use it to make their frames.

Among others brands, Ray-Ban has chosen acetate as its main material for many years. For example, many people know their Wayfarer model and equate it to high quality. This is because it is partly made of very durable acetate.

In addition, other brands have also chosen to use acetate as a main material in their frames, such as Persol. Persol is a brand synonymous with quality and is a favourite of many celebrities.

In conclusion, you should never judge a frame badly if it is made of acetate.
