GLCO uses the most exclusive, highest quality materials from the best suppliers in the industry with hundreds of years of experience. Our cured acetates, ranging from deadstock to colorways exclusively designed and produced for GLCO, are sourced from the top acetate houses in Japan, Italy, and China.
Our lenses are made of mineral glass and scratch-resistant CR-39 plastic, with anti-reflective coating and other treatments such as layered mirrors for the best eye protection, clarity, and visual acuity.
Each design incorporates the easy-going philosophy of California culture and is stamped with VC/CA 90291 as a reminder of our Venice roots. It is important that we manufacture our eyewear ethically and at a fair price without sacrificing quality; this is the reason we are proud to be made in China.
