Bespoke eyewear in 3 easy steps:
STEP 1 - Opening Consultation
Tell us about yourself. What are your interests? What are you looking for in your dream eyewear frame? How can we improve your life with the perfect frame for you? At this stage we discuss reference images and take your measurements...
International customer: Taking measurements remotely is not complicated. We have developed an easy system to take your exact measurements. All you need is a ruler and a camera phone. We can take consultations over a video call or email. Whatever works for you.
Local customer: Our showroom and workshop is located in Edinburgh. If you’re in the city we can take measurements and talk about your dream frame in person.
STEP 2 - Bespoke Design
From the reference images we discuss in Step 1 we start incorporating your design features into the frame. Usually we send 3-4 variations of the design. With your feedback we decide on the final design for your dream frame.
STEP 3 - Manufacture
Your bespoke eyewear design is sent to our Edinburgh workshop where we start handcrafting your frame using our sustainable technology. It usually takes around 9-10 weeks to manufacture and ship your order after the opening consultation.
Prescription: Single vision prescription lenses and sunglass lenses are included. Single vision lenses come with anti-scratch and anti-reflective coating.
*If you have a different prescription to single vision we can still make your frame. Your local optician can help us fit your prescription*
Below are some examples of bespoke eyewear we have made for previous customers. We have added bit of information behind the customer and the design to give some background of the process.
Arts & crafts designer:
She wanted something big, bold and a little bit quirky.
Their favourite musician in the 60's & 70's was Roy Orbison who was renowned for his thick eyewear. They wanted an Orbison-inspired frame with darker colour material.
Engineer & Teacher:
This frame was made extra wide to meet this customers requirements. They wanted a round blue frame which had something different about it. With them, we co-designed an oversized panto shape with top bar and silver temples.
Our heart shaped frame which was developed for our 'I LOVE HEMP' concept. It shows the possible shape options available with bespoke. Our natural hemp material was combined with gold titanium temples and we also engraved the production run numbers with gold paint.
The client wanted a stylish square frame in a dark blue colour but were undecided on a thick or thin frame. So we designed a thick bridge with thinner shape in the middle of the frame.
Classic panto shape with key hole bridge, titanium nose pads and gold titanium temples. Their requirements were for a thinner frame to wear as optical and also wanted lenses which transition into grey sunglasses.
