Baleen Eyewear is built to last, thanks to the best traditions of European craftsmanship, who are the pioneers of this industry. Hence, all the materials we use come from the top Italian producers. The eyewear is manufactured and hand-finished in France, and our original cases are produced by one of the oldest Polish leather craftsmen.
We are proud that every element of the Baleen experience is designed with sustainability and function in mind. We are guided by a principle of quality over quantity, and limiting ourselves to a regional production.
Transparency of the supply chain
We want to be a transparent producer for conscious consumers. Therefore, we share the origin of our materials and its producers and recognize their contribution to the quality of our product.
Acetate Frames - Mazzucchelli
Cellulose Acetate is a bioplastic derived from cellulose and camphor, which are both plant-based ingredients. In fact, celluloid replaced the tortoiseshell, whalebone, horn and any other animal bones from the production of eyewear while replicating their natural effects. In recent years, Mazzucchelli has improved the energy efficiency of its production, significantly reducing waste and cutting carbon emissions.
