The Optician Awards are like the BAFTAs for eyewear, so we’re thrilled to announce our Blackcap frame has been shortlisted in the final alongside eight other frames. Winning an Optician Award is considered one of the highest accolades optical professionals, practices and companies can achieve. Discover more HERE
The optical frame we chose to enter the Optician Awards is the Blackcap. Named after the wild bird which displays similar colours in the wild, this model is one of our most popular. The wooden frame has been highly engineered using multiple layers of sustainable ash, bamboo and beechwood, plus two core layers of aluminium for strength. The beechwood nose-pads are soft and tactile and the temples feature sprung hinges with adjustable ends to give the best fit for the wearer. To date, we haven’t seen another pair of wooden sunglasses like this.
