Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price, while leading the way for socially conscious businesses.
How Our Glasses are Made
Every Warby Parker frame is designed in-house, where our team puts together mood boards for inspiration, sketches initial designs, and maps out product details for prototyping. From custom-designed cellulose acetate sourced from a family-run Italian factory to ultra-lightweight titanium, we use nothing but premium materials for our frames. After raw material is cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The frames are then carefully assembled and sent through a series of quality checks. We custom-cut and polish the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and anti-scratch coatings. Our frames come standard with polycarbonate lenses, which are impact-resistant and UV 400 protected. After the frames are individually inspected and bench aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for you!
