How Its Made
All Playn frames are made by hand, one by one. Many of the components, such as the acetate sheets, spring hinges and nose pads are supplied by carefully selected partners from Germany, Italy and France. They are assembled in small, worker-friendly factories in Guangdong, China. The crafting of a frame from acetate sheet to a final Barbey Blue Sunglasses usually takes up to 40 single production steps. During this process they will be cut, milled and carved, toasted and bent, tumbled, assembled, polished and finally undergo thorough quality controls.
