Acetate

TOM DAVIES

Acetate - Acetate is one of our core materials here at Tom Davies. After years of testing different versions, Tom has created a premium quality acetate by using high concentrations of wood pulp in the basic structure. This ensures that the material looks good for longer, keeps its shape better, and scratches less easily.

In order to create our acetate frames, we require skilled craftsmen. This is because each frame needs at least 24 hours of polishing: first in a special tumbling machine, and then a detailed hand polishing. The high level of craftsmanship involved in our designs and the attention to detail is what sets our acetate frames apart from the rest.

TOM DAVIES - Optical frames & sunglasses

TOM DAVIES

Tom Davies is a prestigious handcrafted British eyewear brand, built on the principles of fit, form and function. 

Each Tom Davies frame is handmade to perfection, whether it is via the company's bespoke and custom services or a frame from the TD ready-to-wear collection. Founded by Tom in 2002, the company uses only the highest quality materials: principally natural horn, pure titanium and acetate. Tom Davies prides itself on being the only British brand to offer fully bespoke eyewear handmade in the firm’s own factory in London. A custom made-to-order service is offered for all of the brand's optical retailers worldwide, and is available for every frame in the TD collection. This unique service allows us to adapt frames to each customer's specific requirements and individual style.

This year, following the successful launch of our first recycled acetate frames, we are excited to introduce an even wider range of recycled frames. With this new line, Tom Davies aims to place more focus on environmentally friendly frame production, while still remaining true to its luxury vision.
