David Pellicer founded Etnia Barcelona in 2003. He grew up in a family in the glasses industry and at 17, he was already working in his father’s glasses factory. In creating Etnia Barcelona, he wanted to have a brand which focuses on colour, in a world where other brands were selling black or brown frames, with no interest in bright, happy colours. Indeed, the brand became successful very quickly. Furthermore, famous fans such as Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt have been spotted wearing sunglasses from the brand.
The brand focuses on colour and design, and quite often it is the case that fashion and art influences the designs. Therefore, Etnia works closely with famous artists, conducting two colour studies per year. Consequently, the customers always have the most up-to-date, stylish frames. The designs are also heavily influenced by vintage fashions, with the brand often recycling trends from previous decades. Then they bring them up-to-date for modern customers. Certainly, if you want to stand out from the crowd and enjoying expressing yourself using colour and fashion, then Etnia Barcelona could be the right choice for you!
Natural acetate is the main material in many of Etnia Barcelona’s frames. Acetate is material made from cotton, rather than petroleum. Furthermore, with this material, you can be guaranteed comfortable, flexible frames that you can wear all day without worrying. Indeed, acetate frames are much more environmentally friendly than some of the brands’ counterparts. To find out more about acetate, click here.
