The mission is to provide the best quality filter for the eyes in the most functional light frame Ottomila (Italian for "8000") has infinite meanings, some of them yet to be explored. It's namesake is a mountaineering reference to the 14 highest peaks in the world with an altitude greater than 8,000 meters above sea level. These peaks are known as ' the eight-thousanders' or 'gli ottomila'.
Each model is also produced in a limited edition with a maximum of 8000 pair, as a testimony to their uniqueness, each product is marked with a serial number on the inside of the temples. The frames are entirely hand crafted in Italy with obsessive attention to quality, form and details. Only the finest materials are used for manufacturing such as Barberini mineral glass lenses, elastic stainless steel metal, titanium, genuine Italian leather and Italian acetates. Every frame is offeree with a hand crafted, low profile genuine leather case. An integral part of the product, it serves as a protective glove, minimizing the volume of the eyewear when not in use. The simple classic design of the glasses makes them totally unisex.
The overall result is as timeless as it is contemporary.
