You’ll love the sleek lines and tactile wood texture that make every pair unique as you. Carefully finished with triple barrel sprung hinges to give the arms flexibility and ensure a snug fit. The Otus is one of our first frames to incorporate Mazzucchelli bio acetate and wood.
Made with Cellulose acetate, a naturally derived material providing an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based plastics. Cellulose acetate is made by extracting cellulose fibres from cotton or wood pulp to create a transparent paste. This paste can then be coloured and molded into our beautiful frames.
Ultra-clear polarised lenses
Your eyes are precious, so, all frames utilize ultra clear polarised lenses in various options. These offer 100% UVA protection (UV400), keeping your eyes safe in the sun. Particularly helpful for when you’re driving, at the beach and during water sports, as well as everyday life. Need prescription lenses? No problem. These frames are prescription ready and can be tailored to suit your needs.

Share your sun
Every pair sold brings the gift of clean and safe light to a family in central Africa through our Share Your Sun partnership with SolarAid.
598 million people in Africa alone have no access to electricity. Without electricity families have no clean source of light, leaving millions to rely on expensive and dangerous alternatives. With a solar light, everything changes. These little lamps are safe, clean and affordable. They give off hours of light in the evening so families can earn, learn and feel safe after dark. Just one lamp can transform the fortunes of an entire family and is the first step on an energy ladder to full electrification.
For each lamp this equates to:
- 4 people reached
- £145 saved in not having to buy fuel
- 1006 hours of extra study time for students and children
- 1.1 tonnes of CO2 emissions averted
- 2 people experiencing better health
