Summer shades: Dom Vetro’s 17th Century craft and 21st Century style

From the locally sourced materials to the craftsmen that have dedicated their entire lives to the production of eyewear, there are countless aspects that make Dom Vetro’s Italian sunglasses unique.

Keeping with the 300-year-old tradition, each pair of frames is crafted by hand in the Italian Alps and only assisted by machines to assure top quality and efficient production. Furthermore, the lenses are milled out of optical glass, polarized, and treated with an anti-reflective coating, giving you the best clarity while protecting your eyes.

With each pair made to minimize waste and embody centuries-old craftsmanship, $295 is an investment in tradition and skill. Help Dom Vetro fight the good fight against mass production (in style) here.
