The Etnia Barcelona Collection

Established in 2003, Etnia Barcelona eyewear is bathed in beautiful colours drawing attention to their amazing craftsmanship. At that time, eyewear collections were mostly black or brown and colour was not an important factor to manufacturers. The brand has built a reputation on design and construction, changing the eyewear industry.

Etnia is an independent brand that has created a wide range of colours, collections and designs for everyone who wants to express themselves beyond the cannons imposed by momentary and passing fashion and trends. The collection focuses on colour, design, comfort, value and quality.

The acetate is produced by mixing pulverized cotton and acetone to create a paste. Colour is then added using various pressing processes. It is then cured, cut and laminated. Once this is complete it is set in molds and aged for a period of 12 weeks. When these blocks are removed from the molds they are cut to the desired measurement. From these acetate sheets the plastic frame fronts and temples are made. Because of this, no two frames are the same.

These beautifully designed Spanish frames are available to view in our practice. There are many more colours and styles available for you to choose from.
