Material Matters Masters
Every one of our models has its own origin, be it as a sketch on a napkin or on graph paper. What unites them is the fact that each drawing or sketch is entered into a digital CAD system, where it is fine-tuned to serve as the base for starting the production process.
We love to use fine materials, because you can really sense their quality. High-quality acetate sourced from an Italian factory or first-rate metal are the building blocks for every Andy Wolf frame. Most of them are made from sustainably produced acetate – a material obtained from hardened cotton flocks, that lends itself to a variety of treatments and shapes.
We use 6-8 mm thick plates of it that enable us to mill the middle part of a frame out of a single piece. Of course we could use thinner acetate plates to produce a pair of glasses, but in our opinion it just wouldn’t be an Andy Wolf frame then.
