The history of Ovvo Optics goes back to Europe of the cold war era. That's when a group of scientists, who were working on developing a material for spacecraft and military use, fused surgical steel and titanium, achieving an exceptionally light, durable and flexible material that is also hypoallergenic.
Inspired by its remarkable qualities, in 1980 the engineers of the company started this unique composite to make frames for glasses. Bringing exquisite European styling and unmatched quality, each Ovvo frame is hand-made and manufactured in Germany and Poland with outstanding precision mastered by over 30 years of experience.
Weighing barely 0.6 ounces, Ovvo frames offer unparalleled comfort and unfailing durabilty. Tests showed that stratched flat, frames can hold up to 90 pounds without breaking or damaging the frame. Virtually indestructible and highly flexible is the Ovvo Optics patented screwless hinge design that can withstand more than 300,000 rotations (an equivalent of 205 years of usage) and reveal no changes in structure or appearance.
Ovvo Optics' eyewear is 100% manufactured in family-owned plants in Europe. Using German engineered laser-technology, the frames are cut from raw steel sheets imported from Sweden. Each frame passes through various stages of hand manufacturing, a 65 - 85 step process developed by our technicians. With great precision and attention to detail the frames are hand polished, painted, decorated and assembled by a crew of 250 dedicated eyewear production experts. At each phase, they are inspected with care for the highest quality assurance. The end result is a flawless piece of art, sophisticated and comfortable, yet durable and flexible.
