NEUFOUND® Eyewear has been established as a premium label designing handmade sustainable unisex frames for the discerning wearer who appreciates a refined aesthetic.
We take reference from the past with an eye firmly on the future — our aesthetic is built on design classics and timeless silhouettes, constructed from future friendly materials.
Each frame is expertly handcrafted from biodegradable cellulose acetate which is sustainable and derived from cotton and wood pulp. This material will completely breakdown when buried in soil or landfill over time, making it better for you and the environment.
We choose high grade CR-39 lenses, a superior polymer based material with glass like properties - light refraction is measured at a similar rate to glass, offering the wearer ultimate optical clarity. CR-39 lenses are highly abrasion resistant and come in a wide range of colour and gradient hues.
All frames are built with stainless steel componentry and feature sturdy 5 barrel hinges with wire temple cores for durability.
Designed right here in Aotearoa.
Each of our frames is carefully handcrafted throughout a 90 day process by our trusted partners in Hong Kong.
Our factories employees are employed under ethical working conditions with access to the living wage as defined by the Global Living Wage Coalition which includes Fairtrade International, Rainforest Alliance/SAN, UTZ, Goodweave International, FSC and Social Accountability International (SAI) as well as ISEAL:
“Remuneration received for a standard work week by a worker in a particular place sufficient to afford a decent standard of living of the worker and her or his family. Elements of a decent standard of living include food, water, housing, education, healthcare, transport, clothing and other essential needs including provision for unexpected events.”
We are proud to have undertaken due dilligence with our suppliers and are constantly looking for ways to improve our production processes.
M49 for a sustainable creativity.
Our acetate partner, Mazzucchelli is an Italian company known for their sustainability practice and their approach to manufacturing biodegradable acetate.Cellulose Acetate is a natural plastic, which is manufactured from purified natural cellulose.
Natural cellulose is derived primarily from two sources, cotton and wood pulp. In the manufacturing process of Cellulose Acetate, natural cellulose is reacted with organic plasticisers to produce Cellulose Acetate, this goes through a range of processes to form your frames.
The resulting material is biodegradable, is highly malleable and has aesthetic appeal, it is also hypoallergenic, being better for you and the environment. 🌎♻️
