All of our glasses and sunglasses are handmade and designed to last, using the very best quality components and materials available.
All of our frames are designed in-house. By drawing on our own inspiration and listening to feedback from the IOLLA community, we put together mood boards for inspiration of shapes, colours, and details we think you’ll love. We make sure that you are always choosing between the most up-to-date trends and feeling great about your eyewear wardrobe.
Creating your perfect pair
Just like no two faces are the same, every combination of frames and lenses is completely unique. Designing the perfect pair of glasses is a balance of fit, style, and function, and it all starts in our Glasgow headquarters.
We design with you in mind
We take every step seriously when it comes to design and making sure you find exactly what you’re looking for in our collection. Each new model goes through at least three stages of drawings and two rounds of prototyping!
It is important to us that we pair our designs with the best materials possible; creating dependable and great looking eyewear.
In-house Processing and Assembling
We complete your frame with prescription lenses in our Glasgow workshop and send them directly to you from there. By processing and ordering ourselves, we can keep our quality standards sky high.
Industry leading lenses
We source our prescription lenses from an industry leading manufacturer that has over 90 years of spectacle lens production experience. We also include lens thinning as standard, because nobody wants thick lenses.
We make frames the traditional way
The manufacturing of our frames takes place at our partner factory in Shenzhen, a place we've visited ourselves and a company we are proud to work with. Each frame goes through more than 50 stages of production before it is fully complete. Our frames are all handmade using traditional methods including polishing, tumbling, and hand finishing before they even make their way to our Glasgow workshop.
We take no shortcuts when it comes to quality standards
We believe quality materials are at the heart of any pair of glasses. That’s why we travelled the world to search for the best acetate, metals, and components available to us. This enables us to complete every pair to a quality standard that competes with those at the very top of the eyewear industry.
