Recycled stainless steel

We salvage slivers of surgical-grade stainless steel that is surplus to other glasses, and then transform them to top-notch timeless triumphs.

Our partner in the production of our metal frames, is using recycled raw material to produce their metal. In their production today, Sandvik uses on average 82.1% recycled resources and is able to cut emission by at least 40% (2019). 

They work on a daily basis to incorporate the principles of circular economy into their operations and their offerings. Moving away from the linear "take, make, dispose" concept, circular business models have a life cycle approach. Products are designed so that they can easily be re-used, remanufactured or recycled. Thereby minimising waste and ensuring resources remain in use for as long as possible.

Steel is considered to be the most recycled material on the planet, more than all other materials combined. Its metallurgical properties allow it to be recycled continually with no degradation in performance. Our parter has recycled stainless steel for more than 100 years and in our production today we use on average 82.1% (2019) recycled steel.
