Tested on Faces” is Suitto’s
creative process

Artisan opticians create each frame for a face and nose type.

The acetate prototypes are tested on real people and are touched up by hand to get the perfect fit.

The frames are manufactured
from sheets
of cellulose acetate
with special colours
that are thicker than normal,
so that they can
sculpt out anatomically shaped
nose bridges from one piece,
making them comfortable
and stable for use.

To make it easier
to handle the glasses
with two hands,
all of the arms
are designed with the
anatomic shape of fingers.

The metal frames are made of galvanised light alloy and are hand painted.

The lacquers of the metal frames and the colours of the cellulose acetate plates are created exclusively for Suitto, according to the chosen Pantone colour references.

Artisan opticians create each frame for a face and nose type.

The mounts are roughened and polished in wooden drums for three days.

The frames are hand-polished with three different fine pastes.

Technology digitally creates ergonomic
shapes, but hands and
time are what give Suitto
frames their perfect finish.
