    Metal as anything

    All our steel frames are plated in either gold or silver (using a traditional technique called electroplating). Essentially each frame has an electric current run through them to allow the gold or silver to evenly cover the metal surface. This improves the overall surface quality of each frame and increases resistance to corrosion.

    Our optical lenses

    Each lens is custom cut just for you. We believe that anti-reflective coating and scratch-resistant coating (also known as multicoat) are necessities, not luxuries. These come at no extra cost on our lenses.

    Use Protection

    All frames come with a complimentary case to keep your glasses safe from dust and scratches on-the-go. They also come with a soft microfibre lens cloth for when they need a deep clean.

    Let’s get technical

    We always use the highest hinge-barrel count a frame will allow to add strength and to ensure your frames last their longest life with you.

    It’s all in the details

    Designed in Australia, our custom wire cores feature our BN wordmark, face shape engravings or wave pattern giving a nod to our coastal roots.
