Details About Tortoise Shell Glasses

Tortoise shell eyeglasses resemble the pattern and look of a tortoise shell. In the past, these glasses were made using real tortoiseshells. Nowadays the glasses are made using high-quality stained acetates, which offer style and functionality without endangering tortoise species.

Tortoise eyeglasses frames are available in various shades. But some frames feature the traditional look, including brown, yellow, and honey shell spots spread across the frame. These glasses have increasingly become popular due to the recent surge in demand for vintage items, and they are one of the most liked styles on the market.

Our glasses feature a unique pattern in shades of brown that resemble those made initially from real tortoise horns and shells. We don't harm any animals when creating our horn-rimmed glasses.
