Environmentally-Conscious Design

Each pair of handcrafted David Green eyewear contains a unique fingerprint created by the incorporation of a fallen leaf, reed, wood, or genuine mother of pearl that is set within natural cotton-based acetate. David Green eyewear, therefore, delivers a true statement of craftsmanship and style while communicating an educated message of support for the preservation of the world we inhabit. All frames are designed in Cape Town, South Africa.

Environmentally-Responsible Production

David Green Eyewear is crafted by hand from a natural cotton-based acetate that is biodegradable and selected for its comfort and long-lasting finish. With coatings certified by RoHS, no harmful substances are used in the production of our eyewear, and our factory water is recycled.

With a focus on superior quality, other components of our eyewear, such as nose pads and hinges, are sourced from Italy, France, and Germany. Following the design process in Cape Town, a single frame could therefore take up to a year of preparation and trial before being launched in optometrists.

Our photographs were taken by a world-respected photographer called
