Creating a single DITA frame can take as many as 320 separate productions steps over 8 months. Our manufacturing process delicately balances traditional and modern production techniques and technologies carefully selected at each stage to generate the best result. A perfect example of DITA’s uncompromising production philosophy is the way in which we polish our acetate frames.
Unlike brands that commercially process massive quantities of acetate frames as quickly and cheaply as possible, we prefer to slowly tumble our acetate frames in genuine, hand-cut bamboo chips of varying shapes and sizes. In addition to utilizing a renewable resource, our traditional bamboo polishing process results in a deeper, richer, higher quality finish that you’ll immediately see and feel the moment you hold a DITA frame in your hands. DITA’s commitment to craftsmanship is just one example of how we hold true to the time-honored belief that there are no shortcuts to quality. Like samurai swordsmiths from a bygone era, our master craftsmen have dedicated as many as 50 years to perfecting their crafts. These modern day masters bring our innovative designs to life by transforming the finest acetates and metals into eyewear of incomparable beauty, quality and style.
