Rigards’ designers know how to do it well. They have a whole eco and environmentally friendly philosophy behind their shades brand, as well as a totally hand-made and unique process that starts from horn, an organic by-product of water buffalo rearing on small African farms, and that to these farms comes back also, in the form of shaving used as fertilizer. All the concept reflects the designers’ desire to make recycling a part of our modern culture (consider that also the noisepieces are made of the same piece of horn of the shades), and the hand-crafted know how is a guarantee of the flawless quality of the product: every pair of frames is handcrafted by a single artisan from start to end, using precision hand tools and traditional methods.
We passed by their showroom in Paris in these days, and they explained us all these interesting ideas that we’d like to share with you. Here also some shots of the presentation, including some of the sketches they do at the beginning of each creative project. Enjoy and stay eco/bio!
