SOPHISTICATED DESIGN AND HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS
ABOUT ASENNE SHADES
Greener way of doingPlant-based acetate / Natural wood / Recycled cardboard
We’re constantly looking possible ways to reduce our carbon footprint and while there still is a long way to go we truly believe these sunnies take us a step closer again. Cellulose acetate is a high-quality plant-based plastic made from natural cotton and wood fibers. Unlike more traditional plastics cellulose acetate is not based on petroleum. Then there’s oak, ebony rosewood and bamboo which is naturally one of the toughest and fastest growing plants on Earth making it truly renewable material. In addition we also ship all of our sunglasses in cardboard boxes made of recycled carton.
Technology behind our sunglasses
Polarized polycarbonate and nylon lenses
All of the lenses we use have gone through rigorous testing and R&D. Only the best quality polycarbonate and nylon lenses have been approved to be used for Asenne Shades. Both polycarbonate and nylon offer the highest durability and optical features while keeping the lenses ultra light. The polarized lenses block 100% of all UV light and eliminate up to 99% of glare therefore enhancing the vision through lenses drastically.
Frames & templesAcetate / Acetate – Bamboo / Oak / Ebony rosewood
After testing and researching various different materials the cellulose acetate conquered the top of our charts. And for a bunch of excellent reasons. Cellulose acetate is superior to many other alternatives as it provides our frames with toughness, high transparency, vibrant colors and gloss. Combine all that with naturally rigid and beautiful bamboo and you know you’ll be wearing an aesthetically beautiful and tough pair of sunnies. Moreover, both cellulose acetate and bamboo are hypoallergenic and eco-friendly! For wooden Asenne shades we’ve chosen natural oak and ebony rosewood.
