From the name, to locally sourced materials and parts, Res/Rei has not lost sight of its heritage since becoming a global brand. The label proudly only works with Italian suppliers to reduce its carbon footprint and this is a rarity in the optical industry where hinges and screws, cases and printing are all often outsourced to other countries.
They have even produced a beautiful new acetate jewellery collection from the offcuts of acetate which would otherwise be considered waste product in the manufacture of their frames.
Bringing you beautiful acetates in ultra-feminine shapes and colours for the females and strong shapes with hints and notes of sophisticated colours for males, there is a sense of romance in every piece.
Watch the video below to see the love and care that goes into the truly handmade process that is acetate production and how beautiful frame colours come to life!
