SALT. is an independent premium eyewear brand famous for its timeless and effortlessly beautiful designs. Each pair of SALT. sunglasses or optical frames is a refined mix of high-performance optics, best-in-class materials, and iconic style. To create this kind of eyewear, the manufacturer combines its deep knowledge of optical properties, the magic of Japanese craftsmanship, and genuine passion for eyewear heritage. Since its foundation in 2016, SALT. is constantly exploring new technologies to provide their wearers with the highest level of optical performance and protection. The brand truly believes that everyone should have the best glasses for “a life well lived.”
SALT. is not about seasonal trends. It is about timeless classics reimagined with premium-class materials for the perfect fit. The Japanese artisans hand select the best materials and details to create a pair of glasses that will last generations. Each SALT. frame utilizes functional pins, riveted hinges, and specific thickness transitions that guarantee the glasses can be adjusted and repaired over time. From the first pencil stroke to the last prototype, the manufacturer implements bevel positioning and thickness transitions to provide high precision optics in each frame. We, at EuroOptica, are proud to be a certified retailer of iconic SALT. eyewear in Manhattan, New York.
Born in California, SALT. is inspired by the tones of nature and uses everything from ocean blues and greens to the golden browns found in the desert. The vintage-inspired silhouettes are offered in honey gold, brushed copper, redwood, black sand and other hues that are lifted from the natural world. When it comes to materials, SALT. utilizes only 100% Japanese acetate and aerospace grade titanium to provide unparalleled quality and luxury comfort. The manufacturer partners with Takiron Rowland, a Japanese acetate factory that produces the most premium handmade cellulose acetate in the world. As a result, the acetate frames by SALT. are both hypoallergenic and sustainable.
Crafted from the premium-grade titanium (in the front) and beta-titanium (in the back), the SALT. glasses feature a durable construction, featherlight feel and ultra-modern look. The titanium is engineered to maintain perfect optics, providing stability where needed most, thus securing the lens properly in the frame. As a result, any stress on the frame is not transferred to the lens, which greatly improves any optical situation. For SALT., the details are important as well: they are things that probably go unnoticed but play a crucial role: e.g. the hinges are riveted, which means the hinge goes through the frame front, which is more secure. In other words, SALT. glasses are just the perfect blend of style and functionality.
Every year, SALT. releases four eyewear collections, each of which is inspired by the beauty of nature and the fascinating geometry of different landscapes. Handcrafted by artisans utilizing only the best materials available, from premium acetate to Japanese aerospace grade titanium, the SALT. sunglasses and optical frames provide the utmost in quality, comfort and design. The company has long-lasting relationships with Japanese manufacturers, which are still using some of the tools from 50 years ago and the same processes. It is important to SALT. to keep that old-world feel in their frames but also combine it with the modern aesthetics that go into frame manufacturing.
DESIGNED BY OPTICIANS
Each pair of SALT. glasses is designed with a deep understanding of prescription lens surfacing, guaranteeing the highest optical experience to the wearer. SALT.’S proprietary lens offering utilizes the cutting-edge filters, coatings, and optics to provide a clear viewing field. SALT. lenses deliver the perfect balance of color, contrast, and light transmission, allowing the wearer to perform at their peak. When it comes to protection, the 100% Japanese polarized lenses have no rivals. Utilizing the highest optical grade glass and cr-39 materials, SALT. superior polar lenses ensure the maximum level of protection, eliminating glare and optimizing the viewing field.
Even when wearing shades, UV rays can enter your eye from reflected light on the backside of the lens. These unwanted light rays can cause harm to both the eyes and the skin around the eyes. To reduce the amount of reflected light and protect the wearer’s eyes and skin in any light condition, SALT. provides its unique Wellness anti-reflective coating. In addition, the lenses are protected by mirror coating, which is totally scratch-proof. Some lenses also have a backside anti-reflective coating and then the lenses also have hydro- and oleophobic coatings as well. So, if you’re looking for the best fitting glasses that would provide the highest optical experience, SALT. is the brand to rely on! Visit EuroOptica to choose your perfect SALT. frame!
