A key part of our environmental transition, is our raw materials which are at the center of our daily working pratices, with one objective in mind:
30% OF OUR PRODUCTS WILL BE BIO-BASED BY 2023
FIRST STEPS IN BIOBASED
Our mission: to offer you quality eyewear while taking care of the planet. A successful trial with our new plant-based material

Ultra resistant, light as a feather, soft and flexible with infinite design possibilities, discover our very first eco-friendly material
CASTOR OIL, A PROMISING ALTERNATIVE
After several months of reflection and testing, we have selected a high performance polyamide material, 45% biobased*.
Rilsan® Clear G850 Rnew®.
