Farben glasses are entirely made by hand in Italy.

Each pair takes a minimum of 10 weeks to complete, all by means of a short production chain and the use of recycled materials in an environmentally friendly way.

Harmony and the unspoilt natural environment of the Dolomites take shape in the entire production process of each pair of glasses, from our choice of materials to the use of renewable energy.

The high quality of our glasses is guaranteed by our choice to use the best Italian acetates and the best components in making our glasses.

Made in Italy
We collect natural elements by hand and insert them in our handmade frames.

Each frame goes through a 40 step manual process.

 

All Farben products are the result of Italian artisanship and the expression of a unique and emotional experience between the glasses and their owner.

This translates into a genuine product that conveys passion and authenticity and that distances itself from the logic behind industrial production.
