Made in Spain
Etnia Barcelona is color, quality, culture. We are Mediterranean, independent and rebel. We are tradition and innovation.
Since its foundation in 2001, the Spanish eyewear brand Etnia Barcelona has been challenging everything, from eyewear design and construction to exclusive materials and unique colorways. The brand is the pioneer in a color study, with more than 500 of their own models, inspired by the art and fashion industries. After two decades of creating glasses, Etnia still does things like it did at the start - with the same effort, passion, and dedication.
From the very first collection, the bold and exclusive frames of Etnia Barcelona feature freedom, individuality, and attractive colors. The brand has developed its exclusive color palettes thanks to detailed research of arts, street trends, and runway. Some frames mix two or even three vibrant tones to be a perfect complement to any outfit of a modern and fashion-forward man, woman, or a kid.
DEVOTION TO SUSTAINABILITY
Most Etnia Barcelona acetate frames are crafted from natural 3D Mazzucchelli acetate, which comes from cotton and wood. When it comes to optics, the frames are paired with extremely strong and 100% recyclable pure mineral lenses that feature the following: the HD Colors technology that enhances primary colors, anti-glare and anti-scratch layers, Oleophobic and hydrophobic treatments that reduce fingerprints and help repel water, and, of course, 100% UV protection with 18% light transmission.
