Each year, GOBI releases a new unisex collection that unites a modern yet timeless look. We design our frames in the spirit of a constant renewal of form, finish and color. Not only do we look for the best materials, we also seek the best form of collaboration. For our manufacturer, making the perfect sunglasses demands craftsmanship, experience and dedication.
Our sunglasses are known for their lightweight constructions, strength and comfortable fit. They are handcrafted in a 25 step process that takes over more than 2,5 months.
Traditionally speaking, the higher end sunglass manufacturers are located in Italy and Japan. We’ve decided to produce them in China. “Made in China” no longer inherently means cheap, low quality, and unfashionable. Of course, we can’t speak to all the factories in a country with over more than a billion people, but with the manufacturer we closely work with, we see the most dedicated professionals.
To achieve the highest quality acetate it’s all about how the raw material is produced, dried and handcrafted. The higher the quality acetate, the better the gloss and transparency will look. Coupled with the best components such as Comotec hinges, lightweight titanium nose-pads and certified UV400 protective lenses, GOBI is made to stand the test of time.
