Titanium

TOM DAVIES

Titanium - Here at Tom Davies, we typically use two types of titanium. Our frame fronts are created from pure titanium, known for its strength and lightweight properties, while the temple arms are created from beta titanium, which creates flexibility and balance in the frame.

Titanium can be made into many colours. This process starts by ion-plating the titanium to create a nearly indestructible colour.  A wide spectrum of colour is then achieved using a secret process Tom calls “magic water”.

At Tom Davies we use around three tonnes of titanium per year. In order to create the highest-quality frames, we test all of our titanium for two weeks before it is ready to go into production. Due to the high amount of skill it takes to perfectly handcraft a titanium frame, it can take up to three weeks to be made.

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.
