Item of the Day: David Green Frames

David Green's ongoing quest for eyewear that reflects that integrates nature and reflects the a consciousness for the environment has led to his latest creation, a frame made of real leaves. For this unique design, Green has taken tree leaves that have fallen, dried and dyed them, before crafting them to ft inside a natural cotton based acetate material handmade in France.  The result is a stunning frame where the design is literally created by nature. Each piece is individual; no two frames are alike.  The leaves come in various colours and forms, each one with its unique personality. The frames retail at around R1399 and are available at fine optometrists.
