Handmade in Italy with love
RES REI means ‘the thing’ in Latin. It means an existing object, with substance and form; but it also means a concept, an idea. RES/REI is the ensemble of things that make life around us, in all given forms.
Frames are peculiar objects: they are fashion accessories, aesthetic enhancers, yet they are also medical devices, precision tools to overcome poor eyesight. Some might argue that spectacles are an extension of someone’s closet; for us, it’s about individuality. We don’t let fashion trends rule our style but instead think of our frames as tools for expression. We focus on the little details that differentiate between ‘the good’ and ‘the exceptional’.
We are a global brand, yet our production is local. We believe in creating frames that reflect our values: quality, sustainability and heritage.
The only way to control quality, is to work closely with the manufacturers, to visit them every week, to listen to their experience and use it as inspiration for new ideas.
We care about our footprint and only produce with sustainable manufacturers. All our suppliers, from raw materials producers to manufacturing factories, from printing facilities to screws suppliers, are local allowing us to reduce our transportation needs and CO2 emissions.
We are proud of our Italian heritage which has a rich history of eyewear design and manufacture. Most of the world leading optical brands are are located within the heart of Italy creating a constant wave of energy for increasingly refined eyewear.
