The lenses fitted in these sunglasses feature high optical precision. However they should not be considered as an unbreakable shield against impacts. In case you wish your lenses to be replaced by your optician and not by us, please ask him to contact us for technical information. The frames are handcrafted and made of especially designed materials to ensure lightness, comfort and at the same time, mechanical sturdiness.

PRESERVATION GUIDELINES FOR WOOD
During the final stages of crafting a pair of eyeglasses is covered with a thin coat of a salve made off beeswax and olive oil. This natural mixture, is handmade by us and it consists of 100% white bee’s wax and extra virgin olive oil. This procedure makes the frame water repellent and lightens up the wooden grain, providing a semi gloss finish. Since wood is a living entity, from time to time it is needs your care. Take care of your eyeglasses like your furniture. When your wood eyeglasses start to look a little worn out, apply a hint of wax or oil to bring back the luster. Oil for finishing wood or even a transparent lip balm should do the trick.
BEESWAX SALVE PRESERVATION GUIDELINES
Every pair of BeSpoke collection glasses, is accompanied by a 5ml aluminium tin, filled with beeswax & olive oil salve. This natural mixture, is handmade by us and it consists of 100% white bee’s wax and extra virgin olive oil. Take care of your sunglasses by following the instructions below after periods of overuse.
Make sure that your hands are clean and free of any debris, textile fibres etc.
Open the aluminum tin which contains the natural bee’s wax & olive oil salve and take a small dab of it, in the size of a small peanut. This amount is enough for the whole frame.
Apply the salve with your index and thumb on the frame and try to follow the natural grain of wood, using straight moves. Make sure that the frame is completely clean.
Take a dry cotton cloth (not the one provided for the lenses) to finish the cure process. Ideally a microfiber cloth is the best solution for this step.
In circular motion wipe out any excess salve with the cloth described on the step 5. Repeat if necessary using a clean side of the cloth, by folding it over.
The salve is 100% natural and harmless for the lenses. Though we recommend being careful when you are near them, because extra cleaning time will be needed.
