Acetate is the most used material when it comes to quality designer frames is definitely acetate. A high-quality plastic originating from the renewable resources of wood pulp and natural cotton fibers. Acetate retains its color brightness impeccably over time because its hue is embedded in the material rather than sprayed on which also prevents any color peeling. By mixing different colors of melted acetate, beautiful color combinations can be created, in layers (in all directions) or in swirls, giving it a turtle look, but in every possible color. When creating a frame out of acetate, a flat sheet of the material is swan (either by hand or CNC) into the design of the frame and then heat shaped to add curve and inclination.
