BEIRUT, February 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading Middle Eastern eyewear brand Magrabi Optical offers eyeglasses and sunglasses made with an array of different materials.
Over the last couple of years, eyewear designers have had to use new, innovative materials in order to better serve different types of customers and their varied needs. Today, wearing glasses isn't just about vision correction or eye protection. If anything, the eyewear field now has more in common with the fashion industry: glasses are treated similarly to clothes in that they are a reflection of the wearer's personality.
Since every customer is unique, a variety of materials need to be used to offer different types of spectacles. For example, Oakley & OGA mostly use aluminum frames while Mykita, Lindberg and Magrabi Optical's own Solo Eyewear usually opt for titanium to make flexible and light frames. Tree Spectacles, as the brand name indicates, mainly utilize wood frames.
Each frame type presents its own advantages. For example, plastic frames provide unique colors and hypoallergenic benefits while titanium frames are light, extremely resistant to corrosion and also hypoallergenic.
Designers have incorporated a wide range of materials such as leather, velvet, pearls and crystals to satisfy women seeking a feminine and fashionable look.
Indeed, Ray-Ban has manufactured leather Aviator sunglasses while Chanel has used leather and pearls in its frames. Bvlgari builds frames using jewelry, Italia Independent has provided its own velvet sunglasses collection and Dolce & Gabbana's 2014 winter collection has even incorporated mosaic.
What's more, ceramic materials have recently been introduced to the eyewear industry and brands that use ceramics will soon be added to Magrabi Optical's portfolio. This will enrich the brand's varied collection of spectacles and sunglasses and will undoubtedly appeal to customers in the MENA region.
