The Next Chapter

Clean and simple. Our Canby model rendered in Black Mazzucchelli acetate and striking reconstructed newspaper inlays makes for a tastefully striking pair of sunglasses.


The newspaper collection is crafted using a proprietary technique, rolling up 1600 feet of newsprint into a 4-inch diameter “log”. These logs are then sawn into 1/8-inch plies to reveal a unique, wood-like texture. Once the newspaper is added to quality Mazzucchelli acetate frames and hand-finished, the result is a beautiful piece of eyewear, unlike anything else you'll see.


The Canby looks good on most face shapes.
