recycled acetate

the opportunity

r43 is a recycled acetate material. Everyone loves the touch and feel of acetate eyewear. Already a more sustainable material than polycarbonate, using between 60% to 100%  recycled acetate means even less environmental impact in the process. Instead of putting scrap material into landfill, it is reintroduced back into the production loop of our factories, leaving a smaller carbon footprint all around.


This material is made from off cuts from acetate sheets used in fashion accessories and handmade eyewear. Acetate is made of pulp and fibres from cotton seed, conifer and wood from broad-leaved trees.


Luxury touch and feel with less environmental impact

Uses pre-consumer recycled material

BPA Free

Minimal product wastage throughout the process

Material durability means longer product life and less material ending up in landfill
