Gold and Wood Horn Eyewear

History of Horn Eyewear

Today, "horn-rimmed" glasses are typically made of plastic or acetate, but the name dates back to the 1890s, when real horn was a common material for spectacle frames. During the 20th century use of horn subsided because other materials are easier to work with and ultimately less expensive.

Buffalo-horn eyeglasses never really went away and now once again they are having a resurgence. Horn frames are soft, natural, and vivid, possessing a depth which only comes from a natural material. Each frame has its own color, tone, pattern and is completely unique. Colors are rich and vary from amber to browns to shades of gray and black with both translucent and opaque colors. The materials are environmentally sound, completely hypo-allergenic and light and comfortable to wear.

A handful of the world's best optical designers and artisans have re-discovered the charms of this ancient material and are using to create the ultimate in handcrafted eyewear.
